either that, or your alsa code opens both (all three, etc) and
links them like capture and playback on one card are linked. last
time this came up on alsa-devel it was claimed to work but no-
one seems to have done it yet. m-man itself seems to claim you
can link all of their ice1712-based cards this way.

paul d was a bit worried there may be a slight offset between 
starting the cards (physically, they are started sequentially)
but that would apply to the windows drivers as well.
