C-Media CM8738 driver(Version: 4.06.1096): John C.Chiang

Rev 4.06.1096 21 Jun 2001 19:00
1. VxD : release the limitation of digital share over S/PDIF input monitoring
2. VxD : set the default XGPBIO to 0

Rev 4.06.1095c 21 May 2001 19:00
1. Vxd: fix the problem of "crashed in shutdown in Win95". The cause is when free
        memory of SoftMidi in dsTerminateDriver, some memory blocks are released
        more than twice. In Win98, it is not a problem; however, in Win95, it will
        cause system crashed.

Rev 4.06.1095a 21 March 2001 13:50
1. Drv: 2 problems fixed
      1). ADC2SPDIF is removed from drv
      2). the SPDIF IN sampling rate 44k/48k select bit (18H, bit 24) is bad,
          must reference SPDIF OUT sampling rate 44k/48k select bit (2 incorrect
          places found in drv).
2. Vxd: ADC2SPDIF is added to vxd
3. Vxd: 3 problems fixed:
      1). the category codes added in Construct_SPDIF_Frame are missed sometimes.
      2). in 055 chip, when enable SPDIF OUT, we can't monitor SPDIF OUT, because
          ADC2SPDIF is enabled incorrectly.
      3). the SPDIF IN sampling rate 44k/48k select bit (18H, bit 24) is bad,
          must reference SPDIF OUT sampling rate 44k/48k select bit (7 incorrect
          places found in vxd).
