How's this supposed to fix the problem? IIRC this "dmix is enabled by
default" change was there already ages ago. Apparently ICE1712 does not
support dmix by this new definition then? It did not work even without 
custom .asoundrc with the previous 1.0.10. But dmix _does_ work perfectly
well in older versions of alsa with the configuration I posted.
Do I have to keep using old ALSA then, or is this going to be properly
fixed? Thanks to the O_BLOCK brain-damage, using alsa without dmix is too
painful, and besides dmix is very useful otherwise too.
