OK, thanks, I'll put to my series in case of resubmission.
Meanwhile I'll keep the series in topic/vc04 branch of sound.git
tree.

What is this corruption issue?

I have only a RPi3B+, and that's all what I've tested.
It'd be great if the patch series could be tested in a wider range of
models, of course.

The patches are only about cleanups. They corrected the bad usages of
audio APIs and its design, but basically I haven't touched the basic
functionality intentionally at all. So the behavior should be kept as
before.

(Actually it'd be better to revisit the design later, especially about
the multi-cards option and the PCM route mixer control, but I left as
is for compatibility reason for now.)

> As a reviewer i have some suggestions, but only trivia. I don't know if it's a problem that this series hasn't been send to devel@driverdev.osuosl.org

No, it's just because that address isn't found in MAINTAINERS file.
If it should go through it, please correct the entry at first :)


Thanks!

Takashi
