It's better to fix this in alsa. I believe you can do the required
change in /usr/share/alsa/cards/USB-Audio.conf quite easily. The "USB-
Audio.pcm.iec958_device" section seems to contain rules for setting the
correct iec958 device number for specific sound cards (the correct
number is 2 in your case). I'm not sure where to get the right match
string for your card, though. I would guess that it's visible in
/proc/asound/cards. For example, I have this entry for my usb sound

 1 [C10            ]: USB-Audio - CA DacMagicXS 1.0
                      CA CA DacMagicXS 1.0 at usb-0000:00:1a.0-1, full speed

I would guess that "CA DacMagicXS 1.0" would be the correct match
string for this card.

If you manage to edit USB-Audio.conf so that you don't need the
modification in PulseAudio, then either send a patch to alsa, or tell
what change you did and I'll send the patch for you.
