I've figured it out now... and there'll be a patch to fix it.
The mute <--> gain interaction was pure coincidence as it turns out.
There's no interaction between the two, just that when I toggle the
mute, the gain gets re-read, and hence it *appeared* to interact.
Notice the value calculated for the channel is:
output = ( regval & 0xff ) - minimum
In my case, my minimum is -6. Suppose I set my driver gain to -1dB, in
hexadecimal, 0x3f. Since no sign extension is done, (regval & 0xff) =
63. Adding 6 to this (double negation) you get 69... which is greater
than the maximum gain of 29. Hence the scale shoots up to maximum.
The fix, is to change the above so that they mask the result; thus
wrapping around the zero point like so:
output = ( ( regval & 0xff ) - minimum ) & mask
This fixes the problem that I observe, and shouldn't break the other
user of the control. A patch to fix this issue is coming.
