Clemens fixes only make sense for v2 of the USB audio spec, which isn't
fully supported yet. IOW, the code as it will go into 2.6.34 is not able
to support that, with or without my refactoring. So rebasing them
doesn't make sense IMO.

Yes, certainly. I didn't expect that to be taken for .34.

I would be fine with having it in a branch on your side, and getting
it merged to your for-next after any .34 issues are sorted out.

There will be quite some more patches to fully support the most common
features, but they won't be as intrusive and big of course.
