When one installs the "alsa-source" package on Debian and unpacks the 
resulting /usr/src/alsa-driver.tar.bz2 file, it ends up in a directory 
under /usr/src/modules.

Normally one would also have the kernel source unpacked into 
/usr/src/linux, then run:

make-kpkg --initrd linux-image modules-image

to compile a kernel and whatever modules packages were installed (e.g. ALSA)

I unpacked the Mercurial snapshot, then did a cp -r of the snapshot to 
the directory underneath /usr/src/modules where the alsa drivers were 
unpacked so that I could still use the Debian build process to compile 
the Mercurial snapshot of ALSA.
