Sound Support Gets Updated For The Next Kernel Release
Takashi Iwai has sent in the sound-related updates for the Linux 3.16 kernel.
Most of the sound driver updates for Linux 3.16 revolve around ASOC (ALSA System-on-Chip) changes but there's also a number of other noteworthy commits. HD Audio changes include Tegra HDMI support, a ThinkPad T440 dock fix, Realtek codec updates for several chips, Firewire audio support improvements, and various other changes.
Within the ASoC area is a lot of fixes and enhancements to existing drivers but there is also new Linux drivers and support for the following hardware: Cirrus CS42L56, Realtek RT5639, RT5642 and RT5651 and ST STA350, Analog Devices ADAU1361, ADAU1381, ADAU1761 and ADAU1781, and Realtek RT5677.
More information on all of the sound changes targeting the Linux 3.16 merge window can be found via Takashi's pull request.
