Wow. Thank you.
These steps built just fine, and I can play audio files
rm -rf alsa-driver
hg clone http://hg-mirror.alsa-project.org/alsa-driver alsa-driver
hg clone http://hg-mirror.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel alsa-kernel
I can see the following running: alsamixer -Vall
arecord -L shows
HDA VIA VT82xx, VT1708 Digital
IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio Output null
Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
arecord -D iec958 -fDAT |aplay
ALSA lib pcm.c:2145:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM IEC958
arecord: main:546: audio open error: No such file or directory
aplay: playback:2019: read error
My obstacle is getting the proper syntax for reading from spdif, as I
have never done it successfully. Advice?

I don't know why both John Stile and I were getting ioctl errors, perhaps if it is still happening to him he can elucidate, but it isn't happening to me any more with the latest build.
