tell you what? That this wasn't an ALSA upstream bug? Maybe because it
(wrongly) seemed just obvious to me: there is *no* alsa module that
loads (as the dmesg and lsmod output show) with that kernel (no snd-*
module would load, not even snd-dummy). Despite being known brainfart,
I doubt that ALSA is that broken upstream :)
I don't know how the Debian kernel is built from source, but it seems
that some parisc-specific patch fux0red the alsa drivers, or something

OK. I just wanted to let you know that 2.6.12 seems pretty unusable to
me wrt ALSA stuff.

It will. And for the records nothing in the -pa patch is needed to get
that driver to work, i tested it on PPC.
