Should this commit be reverted?


I don't know what problem that commit solves, but it introduces a new
problem: if Pulseaudio requests a volume that is above 0dB in the alsa
volume element scale, then it can easily happen that alsa will round the
request down. That rounding is then compensated with software volume,
which in this case is amplification. We don't want software
amplification, or do we?
