[hsflinux] Fedora 7 Volume control...

A couple of  months back I had written about how the HSF driver had 
altered the volume controls on my hp 2315. Prior to intalling the HSF

driver in Fedora 6 there were 2 volume controls in my mixer panel - 1

for the headset and the other for the speakers. Installation of the
driver left me with one control. However, plugging in the earphone, 
which typically turns the speakers off on other systems, did not on
hp so sound would play through the earphones as well as the speakers.

Somebody on the board here supplied me with a patch to correct this
I was fine.

Last week I installed Fedora 7.  With the new install I guess there
some new ALSA code and there is a single volume control in the mixer 
panel. However, with this volume control there was proper behavior.
is when the headphones are plugged in the speakers turn off and the 
volume controller adjusted the levels in the headset.  Yesterday, I 
installed the HSF driver for the modem. It installed properly and the

modem works with F7. Unfortunately, it must be using the older ALSA
as it behaves much like before with a single controller and sound
out of both the headphones and the speakers.

I suppose I could try to patch again and go with two volume
but I was wondering if Linuxant is going to merge the latest ALSA
in anytime soon? Since the latest ALSA stuff appears to handle my 
problem this appears to be the best course of action. However, if
isn't going to happen for a while, I might just be better off
