Argh.  Just noticed the driver author is _not_ listed in MAINTAINTERS.
I guess the driver author doesn't care about receiving patches for his
driver then...  If Arnaud does care then that needs to be fixed.  I will
not be spamming everyone again with this patch set just because someone
can't be bothered to ensure that they have appropriate MAINTAINERS entries.
I'm sure they can be dug out of the alsa-devel archives instead.
