     Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de>
 + Control Midlevel
   - Summary: Fix snd-usb-audio in 32-bit compat environment
     I'm getting oopses with snd-usb-audio in 32-bit compat environments:
     control_compat.c:get_ctl_type() doesn't initialize 'info', so
     'itemlist[uinfo->value.enumerated.item]' in
     usbmixer.c:mixer_ctl_selector_info() might access random memory (The 'if
     ((int)uinfo->value.enumerated.item >= cval->max)' doesn't fix all problems
     because of the unsigned -> signed conversion.)
     Signed-off-by: Juergen Kreileder <jk@blackdown.de>

     that the driver cannot probe the volume resolution properly.
     The table pointer should be set in each codec patch.
   - Summary: ac97 - Added a codec patch for LM4550
     From: Charl Coetzee <ccoetzee@interalia.ca>

   - Summary: CS5535: shorter delays when accessing AC'97 codec registers
     The 10 ms sleeps while waiting for AC'97 codec register reads/writes to
     complete are excessive given the maxmium time is one AC'97 frame (~21 us).
     With AC'97 codecs with integrated touchscreens (like the UCB1400) this
     improves the interactive performance of the touchscreen.

 + HDA Codec driver
   - Summary: hda-codec - Fix typos in alc882 model table
     Fixed typos in alc882 model table.
   - Summary: hda: add PCM for 2nd ADC on ALC260
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     The following patch against alsa 1.0.11rc3 creates a PCM device (pcm1c) for
     the second ADC present on the ALC260 codec used by the hda driver.  It also
     defines a new mixer control allowing the mode of retasking pins to be set;
     this means a user can (for example) designate the headphone jack to be a
     second input. With this patch in place it is possible to do 4 channel
     recording on laptops equipped with an ALC260 codec assuming both a stereo
     line-in jack is provided in addition to a headphone jack.
     Mixer controls are provided to allow the headphone jack to be switched as
     an input.  In addition, an (input only) mode control is configured for
     the line-in jack to allow a bias voltage to be requested (VREF80 or VREF50)
     so headsets based on condensor microphones have a chance of working.
     This patch has been tested on a Fujitsu S7020 laptop and as such these
     features are currently only configured for the "fujitsu" model.
   - Summary: hda: minor correction to fujitsu ALC260 initverbs
     Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     The following patch changes the initverbs associated with the output sum
     widgets 0x08, 0x09 and 0x0a used with the fujitsu model in patch_realtek.c.
     It is against alsa 1.0.11rc3.
     Currently these widgets have their output muted, but a close reading of the
     datasheet suggests that they don't actually have an output mute.  They have
     an *input* mute for each of their two inputs and a single output gain. This
     patch therefore activates the input mutes and zeros the output gain.  It has
     not yet been tested but the above interpretation of the ALC260 datasheet

   - Summary: hda: ALC260 test model implementation
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     The following patch adds a "test" ALC260 model specification to the
     patch_realtek.c driver if CONFIG_SND_DEBUG is set.  This is similar to the
     "test" ALC880 model in that it sets up mixer controls for almost everything
     to make it easier for people to test their laptop/soundcard when working out
     what pin widgets are connected to which real-world devices.
     This patch assumes my previous patch (adding the second PCM to the ALC260)
     has previously been applied since it uses infrastructure added by that
     patch.
     In developing this patch it was found that not all retasking pins accept all
     the modes - in particular, some ignore the VREFxx variants.  The pin mode
     control has therefore been tweaked to prevent this becoming a problem in
     mixer applications.

     Added the missing entries for Intel 945 boards.
   - Summary: hda-intel - Automatic correction to single_cmd mode
     Switch to single_cmd mode automatically as a fallback when CORB/RIRB
     communication doesn't work well.  It may make the driver working on
     some devices with broken BIOS/ACPI support.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 1/7 - Fix test model input mux label
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch fixes input mux labels used for the ALC260 "test" model.  This is
     needed to avoid confusion which comes about because the two ADCs in the
     ALC260 have slightly different mappings for their input selectors. Since
     this is just the test model it's sufficient to simply report both options
     where they exist.  If a model comes along for which this becomes an issue,
     the ALC260 input mux code will have to be extended to allow different mux
     layouts for different ADCs.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 2/7 - switch pin buffer enables
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch adds functionality which switches the input/output buffer enables
     of retasking pins when the user changes their mode with the mode control.
     This probably reduces noise *slightly* for recording compared to the case
     where both input and output buffers were enabled simultaneously.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 3/7 - generalise some structures
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch generalises a structure added for the "fujitsu" model but which
     is potentially useful for other models as well.  It turns the
     "alc260_fujitsu_adc_nids" array into "alc260_dual_adc_nids"; for other
     models which decide to utilise the dual ADC functionality there's really
     no reason why they need to define their own list of ADC nids.
     The "fujitsu" model preset is adjusted accordingly.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 4/7 - add GPIO switches to test model
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch adds "test" model mixer switches for the GPIO controls found on
     the ALC260.  It has been found that some laptops (eg: Acer) can use these to
     enable particular controls, so it would be useful to have access to these
     via the "test" model.  It will make testing new models easy, especially if
     certain outputs cannot be made to work any other way.
     This patch *should* work, but because the GPIO pins don't do anything in
     my laptop I cannot personally verify that all this works as expected.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 5/7 - add "acer" model
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch adds a new "acer" model.  It is based on work by Rimas and many
     other dedicated Acer owners over the past few weeks (see bug number
     1618) - kudos to them. This adds support for a variety of Acer laptops,
     although we are still in the process of collecting pci/subsystem IDs to add.
     There are still some potentially outstanding issues: there are reports that
     the CD control might not yet be functional for example.  However, the time
     is probably right to get a "first cut" into the kernel which can be refined
     as more test reports come in.
     From the reports by various Acer owners, this code allows them to record
     from internal mics and external jacks.  Playback also seems to work to all
     external jacks and the internal speaker.  The "beep" control doesn't appear
     functional at the moment.
     This patch depends on the changes made in patch 3/7.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 6/7 - Fujitsu/test model tweaks
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch is janitorial - it cleans up a number of cosmetic issues with
     the "fujitsu" and "test" models.  Issues addressed:
      * spaces instead of tabs used for some indents,
      * clarified/corrected selected comments.
     Unlike a patch from earlier this week, this keeps both ADCs connected to
     the mic1 pin widget by default.  I believe this is the better default, since
     some laptops don't bring the line1 widget to the outside world.  Most (if
     not all) do bring mic1 out though, so it seems to me that this default
     should remain in place.
   - Summary: HDA/ALC260: 7/7 - add SPDIF enable to test model
     From: Jonathan Woithe <jwoithe@physics.adelaide.edu.au>
     This patch adds mixer controls to the "test" ALC260 model which allow the
     user to selectively enable or disable the SPDIF output pins.  This should
     assist people identify digital outputs on machines which bring them to the
     outside world.
     Note that while the patch *should* work, I cannot personally verify it since
     my laptop doesn't bring the SPDIF lines out.
     As for the GPIO switches added in patch 4, these controls are currently
     only compiled in if debug mode is selected.

     entire size is one period size (which is not true in the draining state)
     but use the actual size passed by the caller.
   - Summary: rate plugin: wait for data to be drained
     When draining, wait for the slave device to become ready to prevent
     committing more data than would have been available in the buffer.
   - Summary: alsa-lib - added pcm_errors section
   - Summary: alsa-lib - added ENOTTY and ENODEV to pcm_errors section
   - Summary: Fix double free in rate plugin
     Fixed double free in rate plugin (bug#1937).
   - Summary: Add restriction parameters to pcm hw layer
     Add restriction parameters to pcm hw layer.
     The PCM hw has optional parameters, format, rate and channels, to restrict
     the configuration.  This is useful for definition of surround slave PCMs,
     for example.
   - Summary: Fix restoration of PCM open mode
     The original PCM open mode was lost by the change of default non-blocking
     open.  The patch fix the restoration of the original open mode.

   - Summary: Fixes S16 byte swapping with generic dmix code
     Here's a patch for generic dmix which fixes S16 byte swapping.
     Tested on powerpc with snd-usb-audio.  (Without the patch I get crackling.)

   - Summary: dmix - Allow more flexible buffer sizes
     With the patch, dmix allows apps to use more flexible buffer sizes.
     The max buffer size is unlimited, and the minimal buffer size is
     (period size * 2).  The buffer size is aligned to period size.
     The period size is still bound to the period size of slave PCM.
     To back to the old behavior (the fixed buffer size), you can set
        defaults.pcm.dmix_variable_buffer false
     in your configuration.
   - Summary: Fix extplug->channels initialization
     Fixed the missing initialization of extplug->channels in hw_params.
   - Summary: Fix timer read from 32bit user-space on 64bit kernel
     snd_timer_tread struct is a bad design for 32/64bit compatibility,
     and reading this struct on 32bit program returns zero.  This results
     in tight poll looping (bug#1938, #1945).
     For avoiding this bug, now more bigger buffer is read to cover the
     64bit tread struct, too.  Also this optimizes the read without
     checking -EAGAIN in the case both user-space and kernel have the same
     tread size.
   - Summary: Add support for S32_3LE and byte-swapped S16/S32 to softvol
     Here's a patch which adds support for S24_3LE and byte-swapped S16 and
     S32 to softvol.  I've tested S24_3LE and byte-swapped S16 on powerpc
     with snd-usb-audio.  All other cases are untested so far.

   - Summary: Do not abort in snd_xxx_close() functions
     Remove several memory leaks by not aborting prematurely from a
     snd_xxx_close() function when some operation fails.
     This can happen when a USB device was unplugged.
   - Summary: allow changing of device directory path
     Add configuration options to change the default device path from the
     default /dev/snd.  This is useful for embedded systems that do not want
     subdirectories in /dev.

   - Summary: Fix check of nonblock option
     Fix the check of nonblock option for all hw layer.
     Instead of passing in asound.conf, check the option in snd_pcm_hw_open()
     so that the nonblock option is referred in the case of "type hw ..." style
     definition, too.
