I recently installed a M-Audio Revolution 7.1 sound card into DEC/

This seems to be a bug possibly specific to the Alpha
Any ideas as to the problem?
The oops looks related with mmap. Maybe alpha doesn't support the
mmap of coherent DMA pages like intel architectures allow?
Try to disable mmap support in the driver once - e.g. comment out
SNDRV_PCM_INFO_MMAP in struct snd_pcm_hardware.info fields found in
I see that there is also a SNDRV_PCM_INFO_MMAP_VALID flag in the
initialisations of the snd_pcm_hardware.info field. Should I comment
that out too?
May be a few days before I can test this out - I have just realised
that a couple of my disk partitions are corrupted; I suspect one of
the crashes of the audio driver is the explanation. I will have to
restore from a backup first before continuing testing.
