Can you try using something like xmms maybe? I'm interested whether the
audio interface does consume any data or if the whole thing is stuck.

There were some other patches to augment the mixer routing

That doesn't include any streaming to the host and back, so that doesn't
help much unfortunately.

Please do and also include the lines that are produced when you plug in
the device.

Felix, Grant - can you try booting a kernel built from Takashi's master
branch and check with the FTU and other cards?
