[alsa-devel] [PATCH] azt3328: repair breakage (Re: [PATCH 1/1] SOUND: azt3328, fix broken AZF_FMT_XLATE macro)

Cleanly revert to non-macro implementation of
snd_azf3328_codec_setfmt(), to fix last-minute functionality breakage
induced by following checkpatch.pl recommendations without giving them
their due full share of thought ("revolting computer, ensuing PEBKAC").

I would like to thank Jiri Slaby for his very timely (in -rc1 even)
and unexpected (uncommon hardware) "recognition of the dangerous situation"
due to his very commendable static parser use. :)

And indeed, the currently committed state IS broken since listening to audio
is strangely devoid of positive effects. :)
Sucks to be taking a larger tried and tested patch series into the holidays
and then making minor "improvements" to it before submission.

I decided that an additional lookup table isn't really worth it,
thus reverting is probably best.

The checkpatch.pl false positive (which triggered the horrid mistake of
additionally enclosing this per-case macro within do-while(0)) was:

ERROR: Macros with multiple statements should be enclosed in a do - while loop
#20: FILE: azt3328.c:982:
+#define AZF_FMT_XLATE(in_freq, out_bits) \
+               case AZF_FREQ_ ## in_freq: \
+                       freq = SOUNDFORMAT_FREQ_ ## out_bits; \
+                       break;

It is also quite interesting to note that this rather uncommon language syntax
(do...while(0) within switch scope) compiled cleanly without issue
(no warnings).

Please note that this clean revert (exclusively created from existing
development steps) was compile-tested only and not runtime-tested on -rc2.
This is due to existing suspected modvers issues on -rc2 (it did work fine
in many previous versions, now I'm getting unresolved symbols issues
with my -dirty, extra/ modules, perhaps due to having switched to/enabled
which I was unable to rectify sufficiently easily so far in my limited time.

The clean revert will be followed up by
corresponding comments and some cleanup within that function in the mid-future.
