Yes it is. The alsa-bk-2004-08-26 patch was released after 
the 2.6.8.1 Linux kernel release.

A first attempt to solve the "beep issue" was present in the 
alsa-bk-2004-08-15 patch, too. I suppose the code was mainly 
based on the patch posted in this mailing list by Julien 
Blache.

Unfortunately the alsa-bk-2004-08-15 patch still had some 
problems. It prevented the snd_powermac module from being 
built successfully and, before the new release, another 
patch from Elimar Riesebieter was required in order to 
manage to build it.
