Subject: [alsa-devel] [PATCH 2/2] ALSA: usb-audio: Add skip_validation option
Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2019 17:56:13 +0100
Message-ID: <20191114165613.7422-2-tiwai@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191114165613.7422-1-tiwai@suse.de>

The unit descriptor validation may lead to a probe error when the
device provides a buggy descriptor or the validator detected
incorrectly.  For identifying such an error and band-aiding, give a
new module option, skip_validation.  With this option, the driver
ignores the validation errors with the hexdump of the unit
descriptor, so we can check it in a bit more details.
