USB bug. This is exactly what I thought. Here's a tail of the syslog:
Feb 2 11:04:45 studio1 kernel: [ 997.880412] ALSA pcm.c:226: setting usb
Feb 2 11:04:45 studio1 kernel: [ 997.889440] ALSA pcm.c:226: setting usb
Feb 2 11:05:03 studio1 kernel: [ 1015.338527] CE: hpet increased
min_delta_ns to 7500 nsec
Feb 2 11:05:28 studio1 kernel: [ 1040.071773] ALSA urb.c:146: timeout:
still 7 active urbs..
Feb 2 11:05:34 studio1 kernel: [ 1046.070072] ALSA urb.c:146: timeout:
still 2 active urbs..
Feb 2 11:05:56 studio1 kernel: [ 1068.660883] ALSA pcm.c:223: 4:2:1:
It seems that the error happened about the time of the hpet increase. Do we
have a timer problem?
