It doesn't help because the way the max devices is hardcoded is using 
copy-paste. You have to look for four times almost the same thing in a 
row, but this is not something grep can do.

Once you have deleted enough lines in proc pdtk_audio_dialog, this proc 
will support unlimited devices at once.

I mean "delete" by preserving existing functionality. It involves an 
underrated device called a for-loop.
