Oh I see you completely removed the a52 plugin support... any reason?
I'd rather the support was just fixed rather than removed completely.

My patch should fix the assert, but not sure what the next stage of
fixing it would be.

Also your patch seems to use "hw:" names in the profiles. This is bad.
any reason why it was changed? If there is a problem using iec958:%f on
your machine, I'd expect it's an alsa bug. Using hw:%f,1 is almost
certainly broken.
