ALSA: control: move layout of TLV payload to UAPI header
In ALSA control interface, each element set can have threshold level information. This information is transferred between drivers/applications, in a shape of tlv packet. The layout of this packet is defined in 'uapi/sound/asound.h' (struct snd_ctl_tlv): struct snd_ctl_tlv { unsigned int numid; unsigned int length; unsigned int tlv[0]; }; Data in the payload (struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv) is expected to be filled according to our own protocol. This protocol is described in 'include/sound/tlv.h'. A layout of the payload is expected as: struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[0]: one of SNDRV_CTL_TLVT_XXX struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[1]: Length of data struct snd_ctl_tlv.tlv[2...]: data Unfortunately, the macro is not exported to user land yet, thus applications cannot get to know the protocol. Additionally, ALSA control core has a feature called as 'user-defined' element set. This allows applications to add/remove arbitrary element sets with elements to control devices. Elements in the element set can be operated by the same way as the ones added by in-kernel implementation. For threshold level information of 'user-defined' element set, applications need to register the information to an element set. However, as described above, layout of the payload is closed in kernel land. This is quite inconvenient, too. This commit moves the protocol to UAPI header for TLV.
