That's not a bug, that's a feature! :-) Alsamixer lays out the controls
just as the driver numbers them, and the driver in turn numbers the
controls the way that they are found in the sound hardware itself. So
pry open your new Echo Indigo, see who made the chip inside, and file a
bug report with them to revise their silicon :-)

What you are asking for isn't wrong, but it isn't a bug, it's a new
feature request. Some other mixers might support control renaming and
reordering, but alsamixer is too simple for that. Some of us think
that's a good thing. Alsamixer shows everything that the driver reports,
in control number order. That might not be the best user interface, but
it is good for seeing exactly what possibilities exist.
