asoundrc file which was used for the sound card to work before

After updating kernel to 3.7.3, an error appears when starting jack server using TASCAM US-122L sound card. Updating to 3.7.4 does not solve the issue.

package versions:
linux kernel 3.7.3 and 3.7.4
alsa-utils 1.0.26
alsa-lib 1.0.26

cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel

First trying usb_stream it says that there is no such file:

The same errors occur using different buffer sizes in with jack. Using 3.6.11-rt25 kernel the sound card works. It was working with 3.6 mainline kernels too.

Comment 2 Antanas 2013-02-15 20:48:09 UTC
snd-usb-usx2y module is for Tascam US-122, but newer Tascam US-122L used to be using snd-usb-us122l, so maybe this has something to do here?
Comment 3 gary 2013-03-18 13:09:25 UTC
any progress made on this?
Comment 4 Antanas 2013-03-18 13:23:54 UTC
I have just tried it today with 3.8.3 kernel and it still doesn't work for me.
Comment 5 drikkbart 2013-03-20 00:27:25 UTC
Used the sound card US-122L many years. Tried several kernels after 3.6 with the same result. Compiled kernel 3.9-RC2 yesterday. ALSA/USX2Y: map: Bad address. Is it possible to get something done about this? A patch or something, or do we have to continue to use old kernels?
Comment 6 drikkbart 2013-03-25 00:54:38 UTC
Compiled kernel 3.9-rc4. Still the same problem. ALSA/USX2Y: mmap: Bad address
Comment 7 drikkbart 2013-04-01 22:56:06 UTC
Compiled kernel 3.9-rc5. Still the same problem. ALSA/USX2Y: mmap: Bad address
Comment 8 Takashi Iwai 2013-04-02 08:55:51 UTC
Possibly broken by the recent VM stuff update.  Could you bisect?
Comment 9 drikkbart 2013-04-03 12:58:42 UTC
I will have to find out what bisect is first. Hope someone is able to do it. I think it happened from kernel 3.6 to 3.7
Comment 10 Antanas 2013-04-03 13:06:58 UTC
yep 3.6 was ok and 3.7+ was a disappointment, and in a sense of creativity it was a disaster. Excuse me if I'm getting too emotional saying that.
Comment 11 drikkbart 2013-04-08 23:13:59 UTC
Narrowed it down. Compiled kernel v3.6, and it worked. Compiled kernel v3.7-rc1, and it didn't work, so that's where it started. I don't know very much about bisect yet, unfortunately.
Comment 12 Trulan Martin 2013-04-30 23:11:17 UTC
OK, we bisected this to this commit:

[v3,10/10] mm: kill vma flag VM_RESERVED and mm->reserved_vm counter
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/1258951/

I'm building a 3.7.0 kernel with this patch reverted to further test this, but I'm sure a revert is not the correct long term solution.
Comment 13 Trulan Martin 2013-05-01 01:14:31 UTC
(In reply to comment #12)

As I suspected, the US-122L works with JACK on 3.7.0 with this commit reverted.

I should also add that in our testing, we found that though the older US-122 still works on 3.7, it subsequently breaks in 3.8-rc1.  I do not know if the two problems are related.
Comment 14 Antanas 2013-05-21 04:27:07 UTC
3.9.3 kernel:
ALSA/USX2Y: mmap: Bad address
Comment 15 Antanas 2013-05-29 08:41:46 UTC
Still doesn't work with 3.9.4
Comment 16 Simon S 2013-06-20 19:26:58 UTC
Got my Tascam US122l working again with this tiny 1-line patch on the snd-usb-us122l module of kernel 3.8.0-25:

[code]

-	area->vm_flags |= VM_DONTEXPAND | VM_DONTDUMP;
+	area->vm_flags |= VM_IO;
 	area->vm_private_data = us122l;
 	atomic_inc(&us122l->mmap_count);
 out:
[/code]

Seems like the wrong choice was made with replacing VM_RESERVED in this case. Not sure if this actually solves the whole problem though, as I don't know much about the kernel's memory management..
Comment 17 Samuel Mimram 2013-08-13 08:03:53 UTC
I can confirm that the above patch makes the US122L work in 3.9.8-1 too.
Comment 18 Takashi Iwai 2013-11-13 17:23:04 UTC
The proper fixes have been merged to the upstream.  They'll be backported to stable kernel soon.
