Hello Andrea,

I backed out this patch and it did not help. But I checked with top
and alsaplayer is in status D and hanging in waitchannel wait_on_p
(probably wait_on_paige). Furthermore there are lots of other processes
waiting in wait_on_p and wait_on_b. Since the problem might be I/O
related here is the output of hdparm /dev/hda:

/dev/hda:
 multcount    = 16 (on)
 I/O support  =  1 (32-bit)
 unmaskirq    =  1 (on)
 using_dma    =  1 (on)
 keepsettings =  0 (off)
 nowerr       =  0 (off)
 readonly     =  0 (off)
 readahead    =  8 (on)
 geometry     = 3165/255/63, sectors = 50859648, start = 0

Hope this helps. If you need further testing just let me know.

Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?
