Here's where the original post was.  thread easily followable from there.


I recall my implementation was a little flaky in the sleep department, but the core interupt and register handling is in there.  under AUDIO_SWITCHING defines.  its interwoven into an earlier version of the volume controls that someone else
provided.  And this was written for 2.2.

It's a start, but not at all useful as is.

Hope this helps.
