Thanks for the patches!

All patches except 3 look almost good to me.  I'll give review back to
each post.  For the next version, could you give the changelog text
for each patch (not only the subject line) together with your
sign-off?  Then I can merge to HG tree.

About 3 (volume-knob), we'd need a bit more checks and tests.  Does
the volume knob widget work always as a mater control regardless
whetehr the real hardware component exists or not?  I.e. can we use it

Tobin, Matt, could you test these patches, especially patch 3, with
your hardwares?  Anyone who has STAC92xx hardwares are welcome for
testing it, too!
