That's fine, to be honest I forgot I submitted these patches :)

Originally I started this because I wanted an equaliser for some work i 
was doing with acoustic echo cancellation. alsaeqaul was a quick easy 
way to add a equaliser i could change real time.  alsaequal needs caps 
which is an ladsp module hence the 3 patches.

I don't know if ladsp is under active development.  Really it's just the 
definition of an API in a C header file so I think it's not meant to 
change.  It's the packages like caps which implement the interface which 
i expect to be active.

caps is self contained (it includes a copy of ladsp.h) and does not need 
this ladsp-sdk package, i added it for completeness.

Is the lack of development activity an issue?  I could drop ladsp-sdk if 
you like.  Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

Martin
