I'm not saying that the developers should use BTS instead of ML.  I'm saying 
that if it really is a bug in ALSA, I'd like to have formal recognition of that. 
  A entry in BTS would qualify.  I strewn-out discussion on a mailing list has 
too low of a signal-to-noise ratio to be useful to the PHBs.

I'll try to get an exact testcase, but I think it's pretty much always with 
"mplayer -ao oss".

Uh, are you kidding?  My driver is an ASoC driver.  How am I supposed to make a 
dummy driver "behave" like my driver?  My driver isn't doing anything unusual.

I understand that, but I don't see how I can do that.
