Looks good to me, but I wonder whether there was some reason for not
having a mapping for 7.1 when there already was a mapping for 5.1.
Before applying the patch, I'd like to give David a chance to comment
(he's on vacation for the next week).

Somewhat related, I also wonder why the surround mappings (both 5.1 and
7.1) are only in extra-hdmi.conf. My understanding is that the point of
extra-hdmi.conf is just to offer the additional mappings for the
subdevices 1-3, so the non-extra surround profiles should be copied to
all other profile-set files too.

And still one related note: it seems that 5.1 mappings are missing for
the "extra" subdevices.

Probably yes.
