Okay, as long as there is no application to handle PCM-interface
controls, the DXS controls should not be hidden this way.

Anyway, the volume level regression can be solved by any renaming, so
let's do just that.  Takashi, please pick the patch below instead.


sound: via82xx: rename DXS volume controls

Only some insiders know what the "VIA DXS" controls actually control, so
change them to a more descriptive name.

Commit b452e08e73c0e3dbb0be82130217be4b7084299e in 2.6.30 broke the
restoring of these volumes by "alsactl restore" that most distributions
use; the renaming in this patch cures that regression by preventing
alsactl from applying the old, wrong volume levels to the new controls.
