I'm not going to drop the patch yet as it works for you :)

The API is very new and is in need of more users (i.e. more than just me
atm). Openmoko folks have expressed interest and will hopefully start
using this in the future. The overall aim would be to integrate this
into alsa-lib and salsa-lib when it's mature.
