Here will do, although the alsa-devel mailing list would've been better 
still. Added to CC.

The homepage is a wiki so it surely does.

I expect this should be a straight copy of the ens1370.c line but never 
use the standalone alsa-driver package. Now that we're on alsa-devel, 
people who do will reply though.

Well, not to unduly annoy you, and thank you very much for the report 
and the persistence, but basically all Linux development happens on 
mailinglists and the mailinglist information is right there on the 
homepage so, well...

The alsa-devel mailinglist is moderated for non-subscribers; if you did 
email alsa-devel before and just weren't let through the moderation 
queue then please say so because in that case we definitely have a 
problem to fix.
