[alsa-devel] Automated test suite for HDA codecs, now up and running for daily builds

As some of you know, I've been working on extending hda-emu to become an
automated test suite.
A little status report follows:
* Daniel Manrique provided me with alsa-info from ~110 machines that
Canonical have certified. These alsa-infos are now upstreamed (except
for a few which were marked confidential or never reached the market),
and distributed with hda-emu .
* The test suite (which also is a part of hda-emu) loops over all
these codecs, and sends a few commands to hda-emu for each one of them.
E g, it tries setting volume controls and verifies that the value read
back is the same it tried to set. It also looks for errors from hda-emu
after each command sent.
* I already run daily imports of Takashi's sound tarballs to provide
automatic DKMS-based builds. What's new is that this import script 
now also runs the test suite on that code. It uses the summary of this
test run as commit message, which is then imported into Launchpad ,
and sent out by email (to anyone subscribed to that branch).
I've just set this up, so maybe there will be some bumps before the
import script runs correctly, but hopefully everything will run smoothly
soon, and that we'll catch some regressions before they affect anyone. :-)
