The alsamixer was fixed to ensure that control volume values are in their
allowed range

so this is why 98304 was set back to allowed range , but it did not fix the
root cause of the problem

alsamixer and amixer 's percentage were not designed as your purpose

Have you studied the source code of alsamixer and amixer

the alsa developers have already posted a lot of time in the mailist list ,
they prefer to use dB scale instead of percentage
