If that is the case then the logic behind enabling dmix should look for
cards that already support hardware audio multiplexing and not enable
dmix. better yet, the alsa mixer should have an option to enable and
disable software mixing.
It's supported hardware mixing just fine on my live card for a long
time. The recent changes resulted in much scratchier sound for me
when using applications that don't use a direct ALSA output. (Sound
output from the proprietary Flash plugin, for example.) It looks
to me like ainit is turning on dmix even for my card which supports
hardware mixing; I'd rather it didn't.
