Takashi I came across a workaround for VMware in ALSA kernel code

Thanks for the fix.

In the comments you mention about inaccurate timer source.
Could you elaborate on the problem?

As of now we see that sound apps running in Fedora 11 guest OS with
kernel don't make any progress and can hang window
manager like Metacity.

VMware virtualizes Ensoniq ES1371 sound device.

Is there something specific you would like us to fix in our virtual
sound device or timer source?
