The name (Adrian Knoth) rings a bell, he's probably on one of 
Linux Audio lists. And if he's using firewire audio he must be
one of the 'brave ones' - it's not obvious at all ATM.

So Maarten Maathuis looks like the one to get in contact with.

Most of us who write and contribute things are in that situation...

Isn't there any contact/overlap between the nv and nouveau teams ?
The nv devs got this right (it also took them some time IIRC), but
that shows it's possible.
As you have probably been reading, meanwhile I've been able to get
nv in place instead of nouveau, and things just work. The 'blacklist'
trick should be documented somewhere - it's obvious once you know
it but it surely didn't pop up by itself.



O tu, che porte, correndo si ?
E guerra e morte !
