Liam, how does the userspace know when the new PCM is ready to use? If
new mixer controls are added too, it has to be defined which gets
created first: the PCM device or the mixer controls. I think it would be
best if the mixer controls get created first, and when the new PCM
device appears, it's immediately fully ready to be used.
