Look into the alsa sources gives me:

snd-powermac is used to run on:
                            AWACS, DACA, Burgundy, Tumbler, Keywest
snd_aoa_codec_onyx is used to run on:
                            latest (last) generation of Apple PPC
snd_aoa_tas is uded to run on:
                            iBooks and PowerBooks without digital
snd_aoa_codec_toonie is used to run on:
                            Mac Mini

  Since there are no stupid computers humans can't be stupid.
