I tried a stock kernel and found that the alsa snd-sbawe module
oopsed when being loaded rather than working.  I built a new 2.6.10-rc1
kernel with your alpha-isa.patch applied and it worked.

I didn't notice anything alpha, isa or alsa sbawe specific in the
changelogs so i'm assuming your patch is what did the trick.
