[alsa-devel] calling snd_ctl_notify from mixer ctl_put
linux at rainbow-software.org

I want to enable/disable some mixer controls based on state of another control
(switching between limiter and AGC mode). So I (re)set the
SNDRV_CTL_ELEM_ACCESS_INACTIVE flag in kctl->vd.access
and then call snd_ctl_notify(card, SNDRV_CTL_EVENT_MASK_INFO, &kctl->id);
Everyting from ctl_put() mixer callback.
When changing the control value in alsamixer, it crashes with:
alsamixer: simple.c:948: snd_mixer_selem_get_enum_item: Assertion
`(elem)->type == SND_MIXER_ELEM_SIMPLE' failed.
When the snd_ctl_notify() call is commented-out, it does not crash.
There is snd_ctl_activate_id() function in sound/core/control.c (not used by
any driver, btw.) which does the same, protected by card->controls_rwsem.
However, it locks up on that semaphore when called from the mixer callback.
Oxygen/Xonar WM8776 driver is doing the same thing - I wonder if I'm doing
something wrong or if that driver crashes alsamixer too?
Is there any way to do this properly?
