Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: usb-audio: Fix regression on Sony WALKMAN NW-A45 DAC
Date: Tue, 24 Aug 2021 07:47:00 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

We've got a regression report for USB-audio with Sony WALKMAN NW-A45
DAC device where no sound is audible on recent kernel.  The bisection
resulted in the code change wrt endpoint management, and the further
debug session revealed that it was caused by the order of the USB
audio interface.  In the earlier code, we always set up the USB
interface at first before other setups, but it was changed to be done
at the last for UAC2/3, which is more standard way, while keeping the
old way for UAC1.  OTOH, this device seems requiring the setup of the
interface at first just like UAC1.

This patch works around the regression by applying the interface setup
specifically for the WALKMAN at the beginning of the endpoint setup
procedure.  This change is written straightforwardly to be easily
backported in old kernels.  A further cleanup to move the workaround
into a generic quirk section will follow in a later patch.
