I'm using the `in tree' version of this driver on my 5000e, and it's
excellent work!

One minor glitch; it appears that the left & right controls for the
internal speakers are reversed. E.g, when using one of the pkgsrc
mixer programs to `fade' left or right it acts as if you've faded it
the opposite way. Also, doing
	mixerctl -w outputs.master=10,255 
turns down the right speaker and turns up the left, rather than the
other way around.

Is this a bug in the driver or a bug in the 5000e's wiring of the
internal speakers?
