Tried that this morning.  Before making that change, "speaker-test -c
2" produces sound through the analog stereo output.  After the change,
and/or with "-D hdmi", there's no sound through analog or HDMI.  That
suggests that with the change, alsa is really trying to get sound onto
the HDMI cable.

Next I'll try the suggestion of upgrading the alsa kernel modules to
1.0.20, once I resolve the build problems.
