Then I guess it was just a coincidence that the kernel with

Take a look at /etc/modprobe.d/sound or whatever module config
file containing the sound setup.  You must have a line with

	options snd-XXX index=1

and this conflicts with the actual hardware.  Take a look at
/proc/asound/cards.  The secondary slot must be already occupied by
other drivers that are auto-loaded beforehand.

Either add a proper index to that driver as well, or use slots option
for snd module.  The latter is a new option introduced on 2.6.25.  See
ALSA-Configuration.txt for details.
