The current detection logic is that UAC3 configuration is chosen only when a device has a configuration with audio interface supporting UAC3 protocol.
Additionally, it already makes sure that UAC3 is selected only when there is more than one configuration.
Otherwise, the first configuration is chosen by default. So, the patch does not affect existing UAC1 and UAC2 devices.
As Iwai said, this issue seems to be because of a buggy firmware which wrongly advertises UAC3-capability.
Could we add some quirk to select another configuration for this particular device?
I see that there is a similar in quirk in sound/usb/quirks.c (snd_usb_fasttrackpro_boot_quirk) .
Could something like that be done for this particular device?

And since I was not part of the initial mail thread, I might have missed some information.
Could someone give me lsusb -v output for this USB audio device.
