I meant that the DSP handling issues in kernel shouldn't be able to
cause data loss even although the device lifeguard would not reboot
the device.

Audio not working could make things in the UI to freeze randomly though.
If I remember right, e.g. lib/ESD or some other related Open Source
component didn't handle robustly audio stopping working in the middle.
(Robust here means handling the error and returning instead of
busylooping forever trying to output audio)
