The problem is not that you need CUDA or PMU support. The real
problem is that if you have CONFIG_PM set and do not have
CONFIG_ADB_PMU set, the pmac sound drivers don't compile because
they have calls into the pmu code protected by #ifdef CONFIG_PM,
which isn't enough to ensure that those symbols actually exist.
That code gets into the kernel only if you have CONFIG_PM and
CONFIG_ADB_PMU both set. Your patch will still fail in the
following case:


If you enable either of the pmac sound drivers with this setup,
it will fail to compile with exactly the same error.
