Great.  I'd love to merge it to the upstream tree after code review.

Could you simply post your patch(es) to alsa-devel ML (and Cc to
maintainers)?  Then we can check your changes.

At best, please give incremental patches containing the proper
changelog and your sign-off in the patch comments to be applicable via

Also, avoid to change version numbers.  If you take over the whole
project, then yes, it's fine to change the major version number as you 
like.  But, as long as the upstream is alive, this may bring much more
confusion than needed.
