Hi Andy,

I'm traveling on business for about two weeks, so I won't be able to
look into this right now.

Any idea whether this is some new regression? I'm just trying to
understand whether this is something that has always been there since
I originally added the ALSA support to cx18 or whether it's something
that is new, in which case it might make sense to drag the ALSA people
into the conversation since there haven't been any changes in the cx18
driver lately.
