HD-audio cooking && QA/Testing

Registered by Elena Zannoni on 2012-05-05

=== HD-Audio Cooking Recipe ===
This session will cover the debugging practices for typical problems
seen with HD-audio, which is the standard component on all modern PCs,
using the sysfs kernel interface and user-space helper programs.

Also, we will discuss open problems, jack retasking, HDMI stream
assignment, missing speaker/mic streams, and better interaction /
organization with user-space applications like PulseAudio.

=== Bug Tracking and QA ===
Bug tracking in the sound subsystem is far away from the optimal
situation. We'd like to discuss how to improve the situation, looking
through the experiences from the current ALSA and distro bug
trackers.

Also, we're going to show the automated testing of HD-audio driver
using hda-emu emulator for detecting the errors and regression
coverage.
