So that's why it fails _without_ any DPCM stuff?  That's why the codecs
fail to have their set_bias stuff called?

Look Mark, frankly, shut your fucking mouth up about DPCM.  This bug has
nothing what so ever to do with DPCM, and the more times you try and
state that doesn't change that *FACT*.  And it is a FACT.

You've had this problem described by IRC, including extracts from the
ASoC code indicating where things go wrong.  I've shown you the debug
I've used.  I've shown you the result of that debug.  You've had
descriptions of this problem via email too.  Yet you refuse to acknowledge
that there could possibly be a problem here.

All the time that you insist that there isn't a problem against factual
evidence, you're just making yourself look totally incompetent and
obstructive - not only that but you're making yourself look like a total

Your comments above are just PLAIN WRONG.

I'm sick to death with you.

You are not a fit person to hold the maintainership role for ASoC in my
opinion, and you are long past having any ability to change my opinion
on that anymore, given your obtuseness against this bug.

I live in hope that one day you'll recognise your mistake here and
appologise to me - but frankly I think that's something that you would
find absolutely impossible to do.
