Well, even if the improvement is not great, it's an improvement. So it's
cool given that my basic problem was just to get the thing working at all.

Alsa and virtualbox-ose. I tried with alsa-source from sid as well as

running testing except when I *need* bleeding edge versions).

Yes, actually it's ok. I forgot to rename the 2.6.26 directory to
2.6.27-rc5 after patching it, so that's why I thought it was using the
