Well, I've gone ahead and done it anyways... talking with DaveM last
night, he OKed doing this for 2.2, so I wasted no time. I committed it
to CVS last night (which you can get with the instructions at
http://vger.samba.org), or I've got a separate patch that should apply
to at least the recent 2.2.x kernels at:

Naww... he has a U5/U10 which uses the cs4231 driver which does not have
this problem. The only logical reason why that might be is because
there was a bug in the ioctl numbering until recently, but I don't think
it affected 2.2.x kernels, so I'm at a loss (unless I play with it).

Well, if you decide to be brave, then good luck... but you still haven't
mentioned if you were getting output on the line-out port. With this
patch, you should be able to "audioctl -w play.port=4" and have it just
on that output alone.

What's wrong with the other rates? Can the CPU not handle doing
