[alsa-devel] [PATCH 0/3] Allow suspend/resume with USB audio.

Problem being addressed:
shell one$ aplay -Dhw:<usbcard> file.wav
shell two$ echo mem > /sys/power/state
After resume, aplay attempts resume, then restart, then after a timeout
gets a write error and no audio will be played until it is restarted.

During suspend/resume, if the USB port remains powered the audio device
will still be present upon resume.  The interface and endpoint have to
be reconfigured however.  These patches move the configuration from
hw_params to prepare causing re-configuration during resume.

Is this the right way to fix this?  Or is there an easier way I am

Thanks for looking.

  ALSA: usb-audio: set period_bytes in substream.
  ALSA: usb-audio: Don't require hw_params in endpoint.
  ALSA: usb-audio: Move configuration to prepare.
