[linux-audio-dev] digigram mixart cards in smp machine

I'm trying to get a digigram mixart8 aes/ebu working in a dual xeon box.
A RME digi96 card works fine in the same box and the digigram works fine
in a different uni-processor box. I don't know if it's smp related or
just the box or what. booting with nosmp does not help.

The symptom is that aplay fails with EINVAL when trying to open
/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p (or any other device on the card). jackd fails
similarly when trying to open the corresponding capture device.

Elrond:~# aplay /var/snd/999999_000.wav 
aplay: main:533: audio open error: Invalid argument

The firmware is loaded. aplay works on the same box with the RME card.

This is debian sarge with 2.6.13 (also tried 2.6.14) and alsa 1.0.9.

Anyone have any thoughts?
