    Could an ADC card be treated as a ALSA sound card PCM device.
    That card seems to have features very similar to a sound card.
    Sample rate.
    Variable gain.

    I only suggest this, because it could result in a driver that is much
    easier to implement as ALSA supplies a lot of generalised support code
    at the kernel level.
