I don't work on the Alsa trees, I work directly on linus mainstream. G5
analog support is in 2.6.12-rc4. Proper full digital support etc... will
only be available after I (or some other volunteer) rework the driver
completely as it can't really handle the dual codec setup of the G5
properly in it's current incarnation.
