[alsa-devel] [PATCH] Use different buffer metrics in the PulseAudio plugin

Please commit this patch to alsa-plugins we ship in Fedora:


It increases the "pre-buffering level" (i.e. start threshold) to the
full buffer size minus one period. This makes PA work a little bit
more like normal audio devices, and makes a few drop outs go away for
software which uses very small period sizes.

It also increases the initial maximum buffer size, which allows a
small overcommit. That's not really an issue, but cleaner nonetheless
so I smuggled it into this patch.
