If this is true, I think it's rather a bug of Skype.

I don't like adding too many module parameters.  There are many
other adjustable parameters in that struct, I simply added a proc
interface to show and store the values now.

Try the latest alsa-driver-snapshot tarball.  Note that the proc file
is enabled only in the debug mode.  With the external build, pass
--with-debug=full configure option.
