The kernel already returns an error on all mixer IOCTL's in the detaching

All pulseaudio has to do is to poll a dummy mixer IOCTL every 4 seconds or so,
if it fails, it must close(mixer_fd) .

D11140 is not a real solution, because pulseaudio will still go on using the
old mixer fd, and so the mixer becomes unusable anyway for the client.

Do I have to write up a patch for pulseaudio myself?
