     Avoid double inclusion of linux/autoconf.h from linux/config.h
   - add request_firmware() wrapper for older kernels
     
     Add a wrapper for request_firmware() that uses OSS's
     mod_firmware_load().
   - fix asihpi compilation on 2.2 kernels
     
     On 2.2.x kernels, make sure that the asihpi driver isn't selected because
     #error ALSA (requiring spinlocks) not currently supported on Linux version < 2.4.0
   - Fix build with 2.2/2.4 kernels

   - [PATCH] build sound/sound_firmware.c only for OSS
     
     All sound/sound_firmware.c contains is mod_firmware_load() that is a
     API only used by some OSS drivers.
     
     This patch builds it into an own sound_firmware module that is only
     depending on CONFIG_SOUND_PRIME making the kernel slightly smaller f
     users.

   - 2.4 kernel build fixes
     
     The patches are from bug#2514 (breitenlohner reporter).
   - release 1.0.14rc1
   - Add i2c-id.h header mangling (compatibility layer)
   - Fix build with the latest 2.6.19-git
     
     The IRQ handler is changed in 2.6.19-git (after rc1), so we have to
     adapt that style for the older kernels.
     
     - configure checks the new IRQ handler, adds missing headers.
     - Wrappers for request_irq(), free_irq() and get_irq_regs() are
       provided for older kernels.
     - For usb and parport drivers, need to patch the irq handlers.
     
     Also, fixed the build failure due to the change of namespace and
     kmem_cache_destroy().
   - Add a dummy linux/latency.h for older kernels
     
     Added a dummy linux/latency.h for older kernels.
 + ALSA Core
   - Add PCI quirk list helper function
     
     Added a helper function snd_pci_quirk_lookup()
     to look up PCI SSID quirk list.
   - Fix compilation with older kernels
     
     Fix compilation of snd_pci_quirk_lookup() for older kernels
     (without pci_dev.subsystem_* fields).
   - Handle file operations during snd_card disconnects using static file->f_op
     
     Alsa used to kmalloc one file->f_op per file per disconnecting snd_card.
     This led to oopses sometimes when file->f_op was freed before __fput()
     finished.
     Patch adds a virtual device for disconnect: VDD.
     VDD consists of:
     	LIST_HEAD(shutdown_files)
     	    protected by DEFINE_SPINLOCK(shutdown_mutex)
     
     	static struct file_operations snd_shutdown_f_ops
     	    and functions assigned to it
     
     	Additions to struct snd_monitor_file
     	    to specify if instance is hidden by VDD or not.
     
     A VDD's instance is
     	created in snd_card_disconnect() under the card->files_lock.
     	cleaned up in snd_card_file_remove() under the card->files_lock.

   - Replace vsnprintf() wrapper
     
     Replaced vsnprintf() wrapper as included in the recent kernels.
     The old wrapper is buggy and may corrupt memory over 4k strings.

   - alsa core: convert to list_for_each_entry*
     
     This patch converts most uses of list_for_each to list_for_each_entry all
     across alsa. In some place apparently an item can be on a list with
     different pointers so of course that isn't compatible with list_for_each, I
     therefore didn't touch those places.

 + PCM Midlevel
   - pcm core: add prealloc_max file to substream directory to show maximum DMA size
     
     Users ask us many times about the maximum DMA size for PCM devices. This
     file gives them a hint in KB.
   - pcm core: fix silence_start calculations
     
     The case where silence_size < boundary was broken because different
     parts of the snd_pcm_playback_silence() function disagreed about whether
     silence_start should point to the start or to the end of the buffer part
     to be silenced.
     
     This patch changes the code to always use to the start, which also
     simplifies several calculations.
   - [PATCH] maximum latency tracking: ALSA support
     
     Add maximum latency tracking to the ALSA subsystem for PCM playback.
     In ALSA, the playback application controls the buffer size and thus
     indirectly the period of latency that it can deal with.  This patch
     uses 75% of the total available latency as threshold to announce to
     the latency subsystem; While 75% is a crude heuristic it's a quite
     reasonable one; the remaining 25% can be used for all driver
     processing for the next samples which is also proportional to
     the size of the buffer.
     
     With ogg123 a latency setting of about 4msec was seen (at 44Khz),
     while with the "play" command a much longer maximum tolerable
     latency was seen. Other, more multimedia oriented players as well
     as games, will have a lot smaller buffers to allow better
     synchronization and those will actually get into the latency
     domains where there is impact on the power management rules.

     free rawmidi instance by snd_rawmidi_free().

   - ac97_codec - trivial fix for bit update functions
     
     This patch fixes a couple of bit update functions in
     alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c, which could possibly corrupt bits not
     in the given mask.
     
     Specifically, it'll clobber unset bits in the target that are not in the
     mask, when the corresponding bit in the given new value is set.

   - hda-codec - Make internal speaker work on Acer C20x tablets
     
     The following patch creates a new "Mono speaker" control in alsamixer
     when the Realtek "acer" model is used with hda_intel.  This is needed so
     the internal mono speaker (when present) can be controlled.
     
     This new control won't do anything in Acer laptops which are not fitted with
     a mono speaker. Acer models which are known to have a mono speaker are the
     C20x tablet series but there may be others.  I guess we could define a new
     model specifically for Acers with mono speakers but this seems a bit silly
     given that such a model will be identical to the normal "acer" model except
     for this added control.
     
     This patch also adds the C20x tablets to the list of PCI ids associated with
     the "acer" model.  This means that owners of C20x machines will no longer
     have to supply "model=acer" when loading hda_intel.

   - ASoC: dynamic audio power management (DAPM)
     
     This patch adds Dynamic Audio Power Management (DAPM) to ASoC.
     
     Dynamic Audio Power Management (DAPM) is designed to allow portable and
     handheld Linux devices to use the minimum amount of power within the
     audio subsystem at all times. It is independent of other kernel PM and
     as such, can easily co-exist with the other PM systems.
     
     DAPM is also completely transparent to all user space applications as
     all power switching is done within the ASoC core. No code changes or
     recompiling are required for user space applications. DAPM makes power
     switching decisions based upon any audio stream (capture/playback)
     activity and audio mixer settings within the device.
     
     DAPM spans the whole machine. It covers power control within the entire
     audio subsystem, this includes internal codec power blocks and machine
     level power systems.
     
     There are 4 power domains within DAPM:-
     
     1. Codec domain - VREF, VMID (core codec and audio power)
     Usually controlled at codec probe/remove and suspend/resume, although
     can be set at stream time if power is not needed for sidetone, etc.
     
     2. Platform/Machine domain - physically connected inputs and outputs
     Is platform/machine and user action specific, is configured by the
     machine driver and responds to asynchronous events e.g when HP are
     inserted
     
     3. Path domain - audio subsystem signal paths
     Automatically set when mixer and mux settings are changed by the user.
     e.g. alsamixer, amixer.
     
     4. Stream domain - DAC's and ADC's.
     Enabled and disabled when stream playback/capture is started and stopped
     respectively. e.g. aplay, arecord.
     
     All DAPM power switching decisions are made automatically by consulting
     an audio routing map of the whole machine. This map is specific to each
     machine and consists of the interconnections between every audio
     component (including internal codec components).

   - ASoC: core code
     
     This patch is the core of ASoC functionality.
     
     The ASoC core is designed to provide the following features :-
     
     o  Codec independence. Allows reuse of codec drivers on other platforms
     and machines.
     
     o Platform driver code reuse. Reuse of platform specific audio DMA and
     DAI drivers on different machines.
     
     o Easy I2S/PCM digital audio interface configuration between codec and
     SoC. Each SoC interface and codec registers their audio interface
     capabilities with the core at initialisation. The capabilities are
     subsequently matched and configured at run time for best power and
     performance when the application hw params are known.
     
      o Machine specific controls/operations: Allow machines to add controls
     and operations to the audio subsystem. e.g. volume control for speaker
     amp.
     
     To achieve all this, ASoC splits an embedded audio system into 3
     components :-
     
     1. Codec driver: The codec driver is platform independent and contains
     audio controls, audio interface capabilities, codec dapm and codec IO
     functions.
     
     2. Platform driver: The platform driver contains the audio dma engine
     and audio interface drivers (e.g. I2S, AC97, PCM) for that platform.
     
     3. Machine driver: The machine driver handles any machine specific
     controls and audio events. i.e. turning on an amp at start of playback.

 + USB generic driver
   - usb-audio: work around wrong frequency in CM6501 descriptors
     
     The C-Media CM6501 chip's descriptors say that altsetting 5 supports
     48 kHz, but it actually plays at 96 kHz.
   - USB: Dealias -110 code (more complete)
     
     The purpose of this patch is to split off the case when a device doe
     not reply on the lower level (which is reported by HC hardware), and
     a case when the device accepted the request, but does not reply at
     upper level. This redefinition allows to diagnose issues easier,
     without asking the user if the -110 happened "immediately".
     
     The usbmon splits such cases already thanks to its timestamp, but
     it's not always available.
     
     I adjusted all drivers which I found affected (by searching for "urb
     Out of tree drivers may suffer a little bit, but I do not expect muc
     breakage. At worst they may print a few messages.

     - do not show direct device aliases
     - removed all known memory leaks
   - allow building out of tree (sort of)
     
     the current configure script assumes that it will be run in the srcdir ... i
     often build things out of tree so you can quickly punt all the generated
     files:
     mkdir build
     cd build
     ../configure
     cd ..
     rm -r build
     clean!
     
     this tweaks the configure script in a few places to use the correct variable
     instead of assuming that configure is always in $PWD ...
     
     i say "sort of" in the subject because there is still the issues of the pcm
     symbols list being generated in $builddir instead of $srcdir and the alsa
     include symlink, but these doesnt really concern me for what i need ;)

     This patch file adds an ALSA External PCM I/O plugin. This source uses
     the dsp-protocol
     implementation.
     
     The plugin probes for a free communication channel at the start time.
     It will probe only
     for channels specified into the configuration file for the plugin. An
     configuration example is:
     # PCM
            pcm.!default {
                    type alsa_dsp
                    playback_device_file ["/dev/dsptask/pcm2"]
                    recording_device_file ["/dev/dsptask/pcm_rec"]
            }
     
     The plugin supports the following:
     
         *  Playback:
               o 16-bit PCM formats:
                     + S16_LE

                     + A_LAW
                     + MU_LAW
                     + U8

                     + 11.025 KHz

   - Alsa support for Maemo SDK (n770): External Control plugin
     
     This patch file adds an ALSA External Control plugin. This source uses
     the dsp-protocol
     implementation.
     
     The plugin probes for all communication channel at the start time. It
     will handle only
     channels specified into alsa configuration file. An configuration example is:
             # Mixer
             ctl.!default {
                     type dsp_ctl
                     playback_devices ["/dev/dsptask/pcm2"]
                     recording_devices ["/dev/dsptask/pcm_rec"]
             }

   - Alsa support for Maemo SDK (n770) - Remove compile warnings
     
         Here is a patch to remove compile warnings. It must be applied
     after last patch set I sent.
         This patch simply changes signedness of some point from the code
     to match the correct sign used by dsp-protocol structures. All must
     use unsigned variables.
         It also changes the way the pthread_mutex is initialized. The
     warning about pthreads is also removed.
     
         I tested the compilation with:
     gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20061028 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-19)
     and
     sbox-arm-linux-gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 (release) (CodeSourcery ARM 2005q3-2)
