Hello all,

ALSA 1.0.5 release is available for download.



* alsa-driver
- use the new module_param*() functions
- clean up of power-management codes
- removed superfluous warning messages after pci_module_init()
- fixed the allocation of coherent DMA pages under 32bit mask
- added early event flag and code to the timer interface
- added experimental emu10k1x driver
- added snd-atiixp-modem driver for ATI IXP modem (experimental)
- sequencer
- export snd_seq_set_queue_tempo() for OSS to prevent calling
snd_seq_kernel_client_ctl() (using copy_from_user()) in interrupt
- PCM midlevel
- fixed the deadlock of power_lock in suspend
- fixed the bit width of IEC958_SUBFRAME_* formats from 24 to 32

- ICE1724
- added model module option to specify board model
- added the support of Aureon 7.1-Universe
- improved the description of ice1724 driver on Kconfig.
- better support of VT1720 with snd-ice1724 driver.
- check PCI subsystem IDs when no EEPROM is available (ice1724 only)
- change the driver name string if given in the board list.
- merged prodigy 7.1 support into aureon.c. they are almost identical.
- allow to use PDMA4 and RMDA1 for non-SPDIF purpose if specified (ice1724 only).
- avoid to change the AC97 rate registers
- USB audio

- AC97 codec
- detection for S/PDIF rates
- fix access to wrong register when clearing powerdown bits
- show AC'97 2.3 information in proc file
- fix AC'97 revision bits on AD1985
- added the write support to ac97#x-x+regs proc file (DEBUG)
- fixed AD18xx PCM bit handling

used to protect paging and AD18xx multi-codecs.
- set PAGE_INT register explicitly before accessing (for STAC9758).
- moved ALC650 revision check to patch_alc650().
- support stereo Mic playback.
- moved STAC9708 quirk to patch_stac9708().
- don't clear PC_BEEP high bits (ac97 2.3 sets frequency there).
- avoid the unnecessary RESET-waiting for audio/modem codec.
- fixed the evaluation of modem codec to call mpatch callback properly.
- determine the SPDIF rate in the build path.
- added suffix argument to snd_ac97_rename|remove|swap_ctl().
- added snd_ac97_rename_vol_ctl().
- Added the single mixer control with AC97 2.3 paging.
