Well, I don't get your point.  "git-pull alsa.git" onto your current
kernel tree and make.  Then you have the latest ALSA drivers for your
current system...

Of course, a subset tree like the current alsa-kernel would be much
more handy.  That's why I suggest to create the subset tree
automatically from the linux kernel tree.
