You would check out the latest mainline sources:

  $ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
  $ cd linux-2.6

Then create a branch and merge the latest ALSA patches:

  $ git checkout -b alsa
  $ git pull git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound-2.6.git

Then build and install the kernel and verify it still shows the error.
Start the bisect and mark the current revision as 'bad':

  $ git bisect start
  $ git bisect bad

Assuming that v2.6.34-rc5 (before the merge) still works, you would mark
this as 'good':

  $ git bisect good v2.6.34-rc5

git will now iterate you thru the changes and drop you off at chosen
points. Just compile the tree you get, and tell git whether this is a
good or bad one:

  $ git bisect good
  $ git bisect bad

Then recompile and test again After some steps, it will tell you which
commit precisely broke it.
