[alsa-devel] Hints for usb audio patch

I have a patch lying around for some month now and would need some hints
how to correctly implement it.

1. What's the correct way to save the state of a special feature? There
is a switch which turns on a certain feature in the usb mixer. Looking
at the struct usb_mixer_interface I implemented it similar to
"audigy2nx_leds" - by adding a new u8 (and the necessary functions).

2. Should one rather set ignore_ctl_error to 1 (which I currently do) or
sort the errors out by adding a handling for a specific device?

3. For the switch to active I need an interrupt message for which I
implemented snd_usb_interrupt_trans since I did not find any other
convenience function to do this.
