I am discussing with Clemen 's patch which clamp the display volume within
the allowed range is not correct. since the display percentage jump from
150% to 100% immediately but the actually value is still 9xxxx which is much
larger than 65536, the user has to pressed the down arrow key for a long
time (alsamixer seem freezing ) for the value to down below the allowed
range (100% to 99%) when the buggy driver did not return value within
allowed range of control
I don't think this behaviour of alsamixer is normal
