I built alsa-driver with latest Linux 2.6 tree without any problems.

It's not required to set ALSAKERNELDIR to ../alsa-kmirror - it's default

It seems that we have a problem with this patch:

    [ALSA] fm801 - Fix kconfig dependency mess of fm801-tea575x

    FM801-tea575x tuner has a reverse selection to V4L1 and this causes
    nasty dependency problems.

    The patch simplifies the dependency with a normal
    "depends on VIDEO_V4L1".  This decreases the usability but fixes bugs,
    yeah.  If any better feature like "requires" is introduced to kbuild
    in future, we'll be able to switch it...

Do you have enabled SND_VIDEO_V4L1 in your kernel's .config?
