Thank you for sharing your experience regarding HDMI as a sound output.
Normally, using HDMI as sound output does not need kernel update, however the option for using it is already exist on the Raspberry Settings page, using this option:
Enable High-Resolution Audio on HDMI to default and if you want to Activate 192Khz sample rate and 32Bit encoding for soundoutput through HDMI.
