I thought that -mm contained the latest ALSA tree, so I build on of
those and booted it with aclink_spdif=1 and aclink_spdif=0. With both of
them the audio out on the docking station does not work (although I am
not sure that it is a SPDIF output).

Thanks, using the spdif PCM as output device worked, is there any way
that it could be enabled by a module paraemter (setting spdif_aclink
does not do that for me nor am I sure if it should).
