As already mentioned by Fons, there are so many differnt versions now
that I hardly remember which one is supposed to work. ;)


seems to be a combined archive. It contains two versions of the driver,
the first (hdsp.c) is more or less what's in current alsa-driver, the
other one (hdsp-test.c) is what turned out to be working for one user,
so you would do

    mv hdsp-test.c hdsp.c

followed by

    make install

Note that this driver uses hdsp.ko as the module name in contrast to
snd_hdsp.ko from your tree, so you might need to add

blacklist snd_hdsp

to /etc/modprobe.d/foobar.conf

Please report back.

Final remark: For some devices (digiface, multiface, iirc), the firmware
filename was too long. mv /lib/firmware/hdsploader/* /lib/firmware/ did
the trick, but iirc, the RPM wasn't affected.
