The second patch cited in my previous post is necessary now (under
5.3.5, not sure about the previous kernel versions); besides the small
crackles when changing volumes, the acquisition from the microphone
under load (compilation, for example) sometimes becomes extremely low
quality (like if the sample rate is changing randomly and often the
audio is clipping). Applying the patch only on the capture stream
completely fix the issue, no crackles when changing volume and no issue
when acquiring audio with Discord under load.

Steam still shows random audio stutters while acquiring for a minute and
a bit of delay, so that is still unchanged, unfortunately.
