Hi Mark,

Thanks for your time. I was already using linux-next - So that would be
the correct tree when you say linux kernel?

If linux-next is the case how long do I have to wait until some of the
latest asoc patches arrive? I thought that the alsa trees were somewhat
ahead of the linux-next because they had asoc/alsa patches in them. For
instance you have patches against both 2.6.39 and 2.6.40 somewhere and I
don't think they are in linux-next.

Regards, Steve
