As for me:

aplay works fine with 16bit samples (doesn't tested 24bit)

mplayer plays first open stream glitchy, but if i open one more mplayer, and
then close the first - it plays fine but prints error:
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: pcm_hw.c:1321:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p failed: Invalid argument
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: pcm_dmix.c:1058:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
[AO_ALSA] Playback open error: Invalid argument

Also ac3-passthrough works with this driver (finally!), but prints errors too:
mplayer -ac hwac3 -ao alsa:device=hw=0.4 test.ac3
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: conf.c:3843:(parse_args) Unknown parameter AES0
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: conf.c:3969:(snd_config_expand) Parse arguments error: No such file or directory
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: pcm.c:2196:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM hw:0,4,AES0=6
