excellent, many thanks for reviewing it

yes, i do customise my card names to contain the chip id. displaying  
this info is the only point of this patch

"-given an explicit device.description in card_properties, prefer this
information over other default prefixes (e.g. 'Built-in Audio') when
constructing sink/source descriptions"

the first sentence of the commit message does state that 'given an  
explicit device.description in card_properties [..do xyz]', so not  
sure how i'd improve on that, other than maybe prefixing the word
