The driver code was buggy from the beginning, but it looked as if
casually working in stereo mode. May patch corrected things to what
it should be :)
I already have a fix patch, but need to check the information above at
first to see whether it can be used as is. So, check the value set
there, and ffs(), fls() and find_next_bit() values. Also, check
whether the stereo left/right channels are really output as expected
with the original driver code.
