I've been wondering about that. Would it be good to say "version 1.0.15 
will be the last version of alsa to support kernels < 2.6"? (1.0.15, or 
1.0.16, or ...). Older kernels are likely still used a lot in embedded 
but do they need other sound hardware then what's already present in 
alsa currently? If they do, would telling to them to "upgrade already" 
be unacceptable? 2.6 is over 3 years old...

The old driver tree could be maintained in bugfix-mode only then and the 
new driver tree would just equal the kernel tree.
