[alsa-devel] Need help compiling alsa-kernel from git

I downloaded a vanilla kernel source tree, merged it with alsa 1.0.20
by copying the files into my kernel source tree, and used that as a
base for modifying a sound driver module.

I want to submit a patch because I got a new device working.
I cloned alsa-kernel git and merged my changes into the tree and committed it.

Now, how do I compile it to test it? Do I need to clone linux-2.6 git?
I would prefer not to clone that whole tree if possible...
I tried copying the sound directory from my working alsa-kernel git
tree into a vanilla kernel tree,
but it doesnt work.

Please help.
