1df5a06a ("ALSA: hda - hdmi: Fix programmed active channel
count") channel count is no longer being set if monitor_present is 0.
This is because setting the count was moved after the CA value is
determined, which is only after the monitor_present check in
Unfortunately, in some cases, such as with a non-spec-compliant codec or
with a problematic video driver, monitor_present is always 0. As a
specific example, this seems to happen with gen1 ATV (SiI1390 codec),
causing left-channel-only stereo playback (multi-channel playback has
apparently never worked with this codec despite it reporting 8 channels,
Simply setting converter channel count without setting the pin infoframe
and channel mapping as well does not theoretically make much sense as
this will just mean they are out-of-sync and multichannel playback will
have a wrong channel mapping.
However, adding back just setting the converter channel count even in
no-monitor case is the safest change which at least fixes the stereo
playback regression on SiI1390 codec. Do that.
