Can you be more specific about all these points please?  It's hard to
engage without concrete technical discussion which there is very little
of in your rather lengthy mail.  Please also take a look at the previous
discussions on this stuff and make sure you understand the needs of more
advanced audio subsystems like those found in smartphones.

Please take a look at Morimoto-san's work on the generic sound card if
you want to work on a generic card, it'd be good if some of the people
complaining about this stuff could help him work on that as he doesn't
seem to be getting any help or review from anyone.
