Congratulations to our new HDA maintainer... ;-)

As vchans is our internal many-to-one (physical output) mixer, and the
fact that digital out can be anything (PCM, AC3, ...) I think a
sensible default for vchans would be to ignore digital interfaces. I
don't know if this is easy to do or not.
From what I've read on the list it looks like great work. I'm sure I
will be happy about it when I get a machine with HDA, so thanks in
