Note that you can try it by yourself easily, as it's a dummy driver
that doesn't need anything special. Just run aplay for that device
(e.g. aplay -Dplughw:2 for card#2) can reproduce the original
problem.

As mentioned, the stop happens not only with XRUN but also in a normal
situation by draining.

Other than that, looks OK to me (but not tested it).


thanks,
