 Severity:  medium             |  
 Fixed ac3 pass thru code with help from mplayer code.

 Now the samples will be passed thru, only if passthru is enabled, to
 iec958 alsa plugin. This way all normal mpg stereo output can go to
 alsa:default (mostly pcm0 or dmix plugin or similar) and ac3 will be
 passed thru iec958 plugin.

 The old ac3 code only append the iec958 options, regardless if the output
 plugin was iec958 or not (and this way it produced only errors)

 tested on my sblive 5.1 and worked fine for ac3 and mpg dvb channels.
