I didn't simply commented out the call. Look carefully.
What I did was guess where would be the correct point for doing the call
that snd_pcm_delay was setting condition for and simply it that call
there. Now the sound seems to work correctly, but I'd like to hear a
second opinion from somebody, who actually know this stuff or at least
is better at hearing delays/crackling/other stuff then I am.

That's not the point. The point is I have to subscribe to post, but have
no need for the most of other discussion.
And CC me in a way that doesn't remove mailing list address, so I can
simply hit reply.
