My PCM-only driver is commitable. Diff to emu10k1.c in -current is small
and clear (at least to me). It's stable enought to be commited. But it
will not be commited because sound@ decided to use another driver that
is better than mine.=20

PCM&MIDI driver is not commitable at this time.
I'm not going to make it commitable in near future because a lot of
things are broken or unstable.
But I can merge all files into emu10kx.c, emu10kx-pcm.c and
emu10kx-midi.c when I fix it (get MIDI to work, fix PCM recording) and
add all features I want (dynamic routing, DSP resource allocation,
better mixer).=20

I haven't heard back from Yuriy, but with timezones and the weekend that
not too surprising.  Merging the patches sounds like a great idea.  Go
and do it, and when you are happy with the result, I'll do the commit.

Kind Regards
