Hi all,

 	does anyone have any objection to move the loop module (snd-aloop) 
from the alsa-driver tree to the alsa-kernel tree (Linux 2.6 tree)?
 	I worked on these things last days:

- fixed timing issues (we cannot use the identical period
   timing for both playback/capture - it also means that the capture and
   playback buffer setup might be different)
- added proper buffer silencing when the playback is in the draining phase
- added stream parameters change notification (stop the capture stream
   when the playback stream parameters were changed)
- added controls to propagate the playback stream parameters to the
   user space with the notification of changes
- added simple time shift functionality to compensate the time drift for
   another clock source
