Hi all!

This patchset adds support for passing through IEC 61937 encapsulated
compressed audio at high bitrates (i.e. those over 6.144Mbps).
At least TrueHD and DTS-HD are such formats.

I've tested this using an NVIDIA hdmi codec and the following ffmpeg
patch which adds support for TrueHD in its IEC 61937 muxer:

One needs to set the AES0 & 0x02 (non-audio) bit during playback so that
the data is not transmitted as normal 8 channel PCM audio.

Anssi Hannula (2):
ALSA: hda - Set Stream Type in Stream Format according to AES0
ALSA: hda - Add support for HDMI HBR passthrough
