It's probably rather that people are too busy to respond :)

Ok, well done :) But are you sure 44100 is the only supported sample rate?

lsusb -v should still show it. For the normal output, you could submit
an entry here: http://www.linux-usb.org/usb-ids.html

Yes, in order to prepare a proper patch, you'll have to do that please.
Check out the latestes sound.git[*] and make sure your patch applies
there. Also note that the entries in this file are sorted by VID/PID.

If you want to avoid that by all means, I can do it for you, but I can't
test it of course.

Thanks for pushing your work back to mainline!
