I've tested your last tarball all day long :-).

Turned out that the Skype client asks for a too much big buffer (or at
least so it appears to me).

Modifying the MAX_BUFFER_SIZE to 1024 and the MAX_PERIOD_SIZE to 512
it runs smoothly and nice.

Would you mind to add those two as configurable parameters? That would
allows for the direct usage of snd-dummy with the various kernels and
Skype client without any source-code modifications, the ideal solution
:-) .

By the way, the memory consumption and the load are waaaaaay lower!!!!
Very very very nice!
