It requires more than 'fix'... As I can see from ALSA driver these cards doesn't
have much in common with old EMU10K-based cards (in hardware). Although this cards
are lableled as 'Live!' or 'Audigy' they don't have EMU10K1 or EMU10K2 DSP
(looking at http://www.clubic.com/photo/00036389.jpg, new DSP chip on Audigy LS
is labeled 'CA0106-DAT').
