You might have hit a bug here that I introduced during a refactoring of
the driver. Unfortunately, I can't reproduce that with any of the
multiple USB audio devices I have at hand, but someone from the
alsa-user ML offered me to send over his device that also show this
problem, so I can have a look. Stay tuned please, and my apologies for
the trouble.

Meanwhile, you could check whether any of the kernels between 2.6.39 ->
3.4 works for you - they all have the quirk for the JS-8.
