Your patch doesn't allow it to be duplicated - it does actually
duplicate it.  Do you mean to say that you want to duplicate the string
so that users can automatically generate the string without having to
manage the memory for it?

That should be OK for the embedded case, the size of the string isn't
such a big deal if you're able to handle a reasonable amount of audio
data, and it's probably going to be a common case with autoprobable
things like HDA.

I'd prefer a clearer changelog but:
