Unfortunately, I cannot release the datasheets for the EMU. Even if I
had had time to implement a fully working alsa driver for the EMU, I
still would not be allowed to release the datasheets.
But, a good start would be if someone implemented support for
extension units in the current alsa usb-audio driver.
A good start would be implementing support for getting and setting the
Referred to in the apple code as "kClockRate".
