Thanks Fons and Paul for the enlightenment. Is the behaviour that Fons 
described supposed to be consistent between all ALSA drivers that 
support variable channel counts? Then what I'm seeing is clearly a bug, 
and I should take it to alsa-dev.
Otherwise, anything other than 44k1/16bits/8ch might just be unsupported 
by the driver.

If the maximum channel count is always fixed by the hardware, what is 
the point of the corresponding jackd option? As I said, I don't remember 
if ever doing something other than throwing the "cannot set channel 
count" error...
