If you want to make a shell script, run it locally, and turn the result 
into a patch, that's your business. If you want to make the shell script 
part of your patch, I think that's a bad idea - the disadvantages of the 
additional complexity weighs heavier than the benefit of less copy-paste.

Also, I don't think force-speaker*.conf ever needs more than first HDMI 
set (i e hdmi:%f,0 in stereo, 5.1 and 7.1).
Unless you have an alsa-info counterexample?
