Thanks, looks good.

I'd like to include a more concrete explanation of the use case behind
the patch. The commit message says that it's desirable to override
"Built-in Audio" with a more specific description, but at least on my
machine the built-in sound card description is also "Built-in Audio", so
the patch does nothing for me. Have you customized your card
