There were numerous problems in the 0.04 i810_audio driver that caused
problems with artsd. It sounds as if Tom has at least partial fixes for
most of these in his patch, but he doesn't mention the poll() problem
that we encountered...

artsd should work with 0.13 if we can get the SiS changes merged in. The
artsd problems weren't specific to the type of hardware changes Tom is
reporting... more like generic problems with the driver's
userland-interface semantics and DMA state tracking.

Recording is something I never really tested heavily, though it does
seem to work at least minimally on my system (driver-default rates,
etc.) I'd be interested in any feedback as to whether it works in 0.13,
both from SiS users and otherwise...

Other people have said that RealProducer works fine, though, with newer
versions of Doug's driver, at all rates, etc.
