You need to recompile your kernel as well, most likely... the modules
aren't being compiled against the same kernel that you're running.  My
suggestion is to just make clean on your kernel tree and do a
debian/rules clean in modules/alsa-driver.  After that, if you use
make-kpkg to build your kernels, from your kernel source tree,

make-kpkg binary modules_image

That will build your kernel, and also build a .deb for the alsa modules.
dpkg -i the resulting debs, and you should be off to a much better
start with your soundcard.
