Currently, there are sw tone coltrol option(bass/treble) on sound menu.
But sw tone control parameter for gigabeat s is missing, so sw tone control option don't work and just change volume.

A good interim measure. This thing has been a point of contention. Mostly because I wish that we'd use the hardware EQ to its fullest potential rather than using it in a crippled way. If something has hardware controls we use those instead of software ones, since the SW one were intended as a way to give tone control to lacking hardware. No way to handle this has been agreed upon. There's been some criticism that users might be confused by the presence of two EQs and the best I can come up with is to have five controls labelled as "tone".

Then again, having two menu items and no functionality is also confusing. :-\

Perhaps: bass, low-mid, mid, high-mid, treble?

Until someone implements *some* kind of HW tone control, this will do :)

The change to sound.c is not needed, though; that list only needs to include codecs which have HW tone control but not HW prescale.
