What is the rationale for the AESS patches in Letux? Does Linux
currently have no AESS support, or do these patches modify
existing Linux AESS support? If the latter, are the AESS patches
in Letux fixing bugs or adding features?

If the former (no existing AESS support in Linux), then does the
hardware targeted by Letux not have audio capabilities
(alternative to AESS) for which there is existing support in
Linux?

Thanks.

N.
