I think it would be best to have this info in the alsa-docs.

Here's what I consider still needed to make the alsa-docs complete:

- A paragraph on using alsaconf.
- Anything that is distro specific. Although it might be better to make 
a page for this which people can add notes to.
- Any info on using the controls for cards that have them. Specifically 
adat, wordclock, optical. I would like to have a section in the template 
for this but don't have any cards that use these so cannot test myself.
