SubjectPROBLEM: SIS7019 stops recording after 42 min
Hi

I have a problem with recording sound when using the sound chip
SIS7019 with both kernel 2.6.26 and 2.6.34. After recording about 42
minutes it kind a stops recording, more precisely it is taking a pause
of exactly 10 seconds between each reading.

As recorder I have tried several programs and all of them fails after
42 minutes. Some programs uses Alsa and some uses the old deprecated
method. In this example I have logged sox rec.

Recording method in a script:
strace -tt -o strace.log rec -c 1 -r 44100 -2 sox.wav &
sleep 3000
kill $?

Recording start 17:41:29 and undtil 18:23:38.977278 it writes about
6-7 times per second to disk. Then it begin only writing every 10
seconds. At this point it had written 27222 times to disk and the
amount of data written so far is 28684288 bytes (including
wav-header).

WorkARound: When the recording stops, one can just exit 'rec' and
start it again and record another 42 minutes. Reboot is not necessary.
Apparently, the re-init of the sound chip fixes the problem.

On other systems with nVidia CK804 or emu10k I do not have the same problem.

I have looked at sound/pci/sis7019.c but I do not really know what I
should look for. None of the numbers in my observations is in the
power of 2 which I would expect it was. Like, I expected it stopped
recording after 64MB or so, but that is not the case.

Here is a snip from the log file when it goes from reading 7 times per
second to every 10th second. Note two times "ioctl" within a second
and then it goes over to a delay with 10 seconds between each "ioctl":
