The Alsa code base is so much cleaner that I recommend people interested
in looking at it to work with Takashi into fixing his code base, there's
really no point in continuing artificial life support for dmasound on
pmac, that codebase is way to messy and confused (and 2.6 doesn't have
the up-to-date one which is in 2.4 anyway).
