alsa.git exists just for pushing to Linus.  The developers except for
Jaroslav has no access to it.

OTOH, HG tree is the main repository for ALSA development, and this is
open for developers.  The changes in ALSA HG repo are automatically
transfered to alsa.git. 

The problem is that HG repo doesn't contain the whole kernel tree but
only the ALSA subtree to reduce the repo size.

That'd be helpful.  Then I'll apply your second part and leave the
first part to ppc guys.
