Yeah, has crossed my mind a few times, and it is almost entirely
isolated in sound/ so has no impact to anything else.
We could tie it in with scripts/pull-upstreams.sh
I wish the ALSA folks would just push their stuff a little faster though.
Agreed -- I actually made a bit noise about exactly this on LKML one or
two weeks ago, as even a regression from 2.6.20/2.6.21 I hit was only
fixed in 2.6.23-git and not in 2.6.22-stable.
In case you don't want to get everything from the alsa devel tree and
instead cherry-pick fixes and small improvements I hereby volunteer to
to that. I've never done something like that before, but I think I
should be able to manage that and I suppose its a good area to learn
