[alsa-devel] [PATCH 0/3] Fallback mechanism for pulse plugin

the following are experimental patches for implementing the fallback
option of PCM / control pulse plugin.  When the connection to PA
server fails, the plugin tries to open the fallback name.

For achieving this, I added the new standard definition "sysdefault",
which is equal with the normal "default" PCM / control definitions.
The difference is only the name, i.e. it won't be overridden by other
setups.  Then two new API functions for opening a fallback PCM /
control, and finally a patch for pulse-plugin will follow.  All
changes are relatively small and easy.

Let me know if you have any suggestions or a better idea.
