BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The PCM framework in FreeBSD, as of this writing, does not handle device
     un-registrations in a properly abstracted manner, i.e. a detach request
     is refused by the PCM framework if the device is in use.  For USB and
     supposedly other detach-able busses, it is necessary to allow the device
     un-registration to complete successfully, otherwise the driver leaves
     wild pointers to invalid data structures and thus leading to a panic.
