Thanks for the info guys, I couldn't see any reason why alsa would be
excluded.  Oh and thanks for the tip re the system on chip, I'll have
a look into that though the kernel version we're working with is
2.6.10 and doesn't include it 'off the shelf'.

Can't imagine it would be too difficult to merge across unless anyone
knows different?
