Default Re: NForce 2 and Linux

I currently use ALSA 1.0.4. ALSA works quite well:
- analog stereo OK
- PCM over SPDIF ok
- DTS over SPDIF ok
- AC3 pass-through overs SPDIF will often not be detected by external decoder
- spdif capture OK
- no AC3 encoding
- no HW mixing

In fact ALSA drivers only use the Realtek chip (ALC650). The soundstorm chip is completely ignored
(ALSA folks have no specs on this chip).

AC3 pass-through over SPDIF does not work probably because Soundstorm interferes the control bits of the SPDIF stream.
