Yeah. The Alpha version of the DMA interface functions in the kernel are not
compliant with the x86 ones (passing a NULL pointer as the dev is suppose to
indicate the ISA bus).
There's a patch on my machine (whitehead.apmaths.uwo.ca/~tyson --
alpha-isa.patch) if you want. I was going to get some more input on it and
submit it (making kernel patches is a little out of my league -- should be
okay though as it hasn't given me any problems and it was really pretty
straight forward). Haven't had the time yet.
The ES18xx patch for repeated looping is also there (on my box, without this
patch, it just endlessly plays the first 0.5s of sound).
After a certain version (2.6.8 and greater I think) you also have add an
include line into one of the files to get it to compile (I think it was
'#include <linux/mm.h>' in pcm_native.c or '#include <asm/io.h>' in
pcm_memory.c -- that's really stretching the memory though).
