Bug Description

The GUI for ALSA mixer shows two options with the same name ("Input Source"), as a user it is difficult to know what they do (and how they are different).

My sound card info (as shown by alsamixer) is:
Card: HDA Intel
Chip: Analog Devices AD1984

4 digital microphone channels with support for multiple vendor's microphones

Supports multi-streaming on playback and record

Analog mixer supports recording and playback of signals from multiple analog input sources

The codec has ADC0 and ADC1 which allow you from front mic, rear mic at the same time

It's patch set name of elements same as in alsamixer and removes the restriction of name length less 9 chars in slider panel
