It's not a general question, it's a question about the ASoC APIs.

People do read the lists but it's very easy for things to get missed and
they won't always check them so often as their inbox, if you're looking
for a quick reply you're likely to be disappointed.

In the mixer control data where the invert and so on are at the minute.

If alsamixer is failing to parse the TLV properly that needs fixing
anyway.  You could just leave that bit for someone else who cares if
it's mostly cosmetic though.
