I see them, including the MODE_RUNNING changelog addition. Thanks.

I see. That stopped me for a bit.

I used to pull your devel branch directly into v2.6.26 which worked 
nicely, what with that branch being based at v2.6.26. topic/wss-lib now 
though is based at v2.6.27-rc1 meaning pulling it pulled in all of 
2.6.27-rc1 as well.

I understand why; the wss-lib patches were dependent on some earlier 
opti9xx patches that are in 2.6.27-rc1 but I specifically this cycle 
decided to stay on -stable for a bit and not allow myself to be 
continously sidetracked by all sorts of problems in those megabytes upon 
megabytes of unrelated changes in the upstream kernel. Last cycle was 
particularly bad.

So I was just now cherry-picking the WSS patches and its dependents into 
a local topic/wss-lib when I decided to give it up after all and just go 
to 2.6.27-rc2. I'm debugging a PAT related problem in 2.6.27 anyway so I 
guess the attempt _already_ failed independent of ALSA. <sob>.

Hey, now I get to side-track myself with Merkey's kernel debugger...

Anyways -- what's the status of devel (topic/devel now I see) now? Is 
that still going to be a branch that's just current ALSA, pullable into 
current release? Worked great for me but if it's too much trouble to 
maintain, I can appreciate that and will just cherry-pick/rebase things 
myself locally I guess.
