In the mean-time, you can hack around this by patching the ALSA driver source code; the following is apparently against ALSA 1.0.23:

hdmi_get_show_eld(codec, spec->pin[index],
OK, nice. I'll see if I can cook up a custom kernel with this patch. Fingers crossed that it will fix the problem (really minor patch ).
