SubjectRe: [PATCH] snd-hda-intel: fix insufficient memory
Module uses shorter buffer if memory isn't sufficient.
It doesn't change size of allocated memory automatically.
User has to change it with command like this:
echo 256 > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/sub0/prealloc
I can change it, but many regular users don't know it.
This card is used in new PCs, which have at least 256 MB RAM.
256 kB shouldn't be too much. Whole block isn't used if it isn't needed.
