Good shot. Streamdev suffers from a similar problem and would benefit from
this patch, too. If a streamdev-client prepars to switch channels, the current
stream blocks a device which will also become available a little later. At the
moment streamdev temporarily detaches the client's receiver if no other device
is able to do the job anyway. With the volatile flag this should no longer be
necessary.

Cheers,
Frank
