[alsa-devel] No dmix/dsnoop on Intel ICH4/5 by default?

Good day.

I'm out of touch of with alsa -- but should dmix/dsnoop still be enabled 
by default on hardware that doesn't do hardware mixing?

It seems it isn't on my Intel ICH4:

$ cat /proc/asound/cards
  0 [ICH5           ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5
                       Intel ICH5 with AD1980 at irq 17
  1 [SAA7134        ]: SAA7134 - SAA7134
                       saa7134[0] at 0xe8200000 irq 22

I believe that it should be from /usr/share/alsa/cards/ICH4.conf, but I 
don't get mixing on this setup when using the "default" pcm...

(which I may not mind at that much, but I was looking at some other 
sound-related problem and this has me rather confused)

This is arch linux, with alsa-lib, -plugins and -utils 1.0.26 installed, 
using kernel 3.6.11-1-ARCH (ie, standard).
