Just tested the latest kernel patch in a "proper" (i.e. patched in
kernel) build (as opposed to my previous out-of-tree builds).

It's working great for me (stac9200)

I tried without the userspace patch and things still work fine for me
under this setup - it's just that PAs flat volumes do not properly
control the Master+PCM pipeline (they both go to mute when master hits 0).

But it doesn't seem to cause any other problems for me.

I'm no expert at the kernel side, but can't see much in the code that
would cause this.

However, from Jiri's alsa-info, this looks a bit suspicious:

Simple mixer control 'Master',0
  Capabilities: pvolume pvolume-joined pswitch pswitch-joined penum
  Playback channels: Mono
  Limits: Playback 0 - 64
  Mono: Playback 40 [62%] [1620.40dB] [on]

1620.40dB?? Really?

Is perhaps the TLV fix for min-is-mute conflicting with a db range fix?
