Subject: RE: [patch] improved volume peak meter in wps

I'm not sure I like the way the thread is working. It reads the MAS
registers, calculates the max values and then yields, in an endless loop.
Since the threading kernel switches threads in a round-robin fashion, every
other thread that yields will have to wait quite a while to run again, since
the peak meter thread talks to the MAS everytime it gets to run.
Is it really that important to update the peak values that often?
