So realistically, either Creative finally provides the required support 
or most CA0132 users can wait until the cows come home. Maybe I'll try 
to contact Gigabyte and Creative's Ian Minett directly.

(Guess that's what I get for buying supposedly better hardware without 
checking for proper Linux support.)

Nonetheless, thanks for the reply, I understand the problem.
