Well, yeah, for distro kernels, it's then a problem of distributors :)
It looks like a problem in the recent alsa-lib. This driver works
fine without dmix, e.g. "aplay -Dplughw:1 foo.wav" works.
I'll investigate later.
OK, I'll clean it up, too.
It can be adjusted via alsa-lib softvol plugin. That is, the volume
attenuation is done in the user-space, not in the driver.
