High CPU usage on Linux

Several Blink users reported high CPU usage on their Linux system and inability to open the audio device at some sample rates.

Please report the following details if you encounter this problem:

Linux version Kernel version ALSA driver version Audio chipset Native sample rate Behavior
Debian 2.6.32-3-686 1.0.23+dfsg-2 Realtek ALC269 32000 44100 48000 88200 96000 192000 100 CPU usage

To obtain the sample rate paste the output of cat /proc/asound/cardX/stream0, where X is the id of your USB (get the id by doing cat /proc/sound/cards)
