May I ask for which hardware are you developing?  This mailinglit is
about the openmoko linux kernel, which is currently supporting the FIC
GTA01 and HXD8 hardware.  This is not a general linux kernel or alsa
development list.

In OpenMoko, we don't want to handle sound based on priorities, but use
alsa dmix for concurrent playback of multiple applications and mixing.
