Well, I must think about it. It seems, that our app will be closely 
distributed with well-defined and recent OS/ALSA version. It may be useful 
for me to know, whether this particular two-thread access to these 
functions should be supported in present and future.

Yes, I will try to check it against new ALSA version and I will tell you 
any interesting observations.

Many thanks,
