following is a report of some tests of alsa.1.0.18rc3 in view of support of Tascam US-122L, which might be of interest for you. As a preliminary information, note that I patched my own Fedora kernel and alsa-plugins with Karsten Wiese'patches a few month ago and use regularly Tascam US-122L under Linux which works very fine; I also provide (experimental) packages for Fedora 9 from june 2008 on my web page.
Test 1: succeeded
- replacement of my own alsa-plugins-usb_stream-1.0.16-4.us122lv05.fc9 by alsa-plugins-usbstream-1.0.18-1.rc3.fc10 on Fedora 9 (using my own patched kernel 2.6.26 including the snd-usb-us122l module). Everything works.
Test 2: succeeded
- replacement of previous alsa-1.0.16 by alsa.1.0.18-1.rc3 (Fedora packages; thus alsa-driver-1.0.18rc3 not included). Everything works, including Tascam US-122L when using my patched kernel (which includes the snd-usb-us122l module).
Test 3: failed
- installation of alsa-driver-1.0.18rc3 (succeeded) on Fedora 9 (as weel, I tested with new Fedora 10 beta which includes kernel 2.6.27.rc3); plug in the US-122L leads to error messages from snd-usb-us122l:

US-122L finally not being recognized.
Test 4: succeded
- same than test 3 for Fedora 9, but using a patched ehci-hcd module (the patch adding some features from the original one by Karsten Wiese not - yet ? - included in kernel 2.6.26). Everything works including of course the US-122L.
Thus, a patched ehci-hcd module is required. Is the patch scheduled to appear in kernel 2.6.27 or would it be useful to work for providing a kind of kmod ?
