Probably totally unrelated, but I couldn't help to find this bit of
code somewhat odd. In snd_ctl_dev_disconnect():

down_read(&card->controls_rwsem);
list_for_each_entry(ctl, &card->ctl_files, list) {
wake_up(&ctl->change_sleep);
kill_fasync(&ctl->fasync, SIGIO, POLL_ERR);
}
up_read(&card->controls_rwsem);

...shouldn't that be using &card->ctl_files_rwlock instead of
&card->controls_rwsem? That one is always used to protect the list ops
on &card->ctl_files in all the other places. Or maybe it is already
locked from higher ups?
