It seems that your post with alsa-info was filtered out.
Could you resend alsa-info outputs of both working and non-working
states? Attach the compressed files if the size can be too big.
Since the commit you spotted is about the codec, not controller, thus
the difference must be seen in alsa-info outputs. I still don't
understand why that commit affects the output quality. We need more
(Cc'ed David since he is the author of the commit.)
