I recently installed a M-Audio Revolution 7.1 sound card into DEC/ Compaq
Alpha XP1000, and it is causing crashes and complete lock ups of the
computer when I attempt to play sound through the sound card.  Since
this is my main computer I shifted the card to a DEC Alpha PWS500au and it causes the same lock ups there, and in one case a kernel oops made it
into the system log (listed below).

The oops looks related with mmap.  Maybe alpha doesn't support the
mmap of coherent DMA pages like intel architectures allow?

I have just applied the recently announced patch (alpha: fix ALSA DMA mmap crash) in the -mm kernel tree to the kernel I am running. The M-Audio Revolution 7.1 card now works fine on both Compaq Alpha XP1000 and the DEC Alpha PWS600au.
