Luke Yelavich and I have briefly discussed using DKMS foralsa-driver in
Ubuntu 9.04, because maintaining it in-tree is problematic given the pace
at which quirks are added (e.g., pci/hda/patch_*.c).  At the developers
summit in Mountain View, CA, in December, we'll be investigating the
feasibility of using DKMS to compile newer drivers as hardware is
hotplugged.  At least one gotcha is present:  how does one determine which
modules are relevant (i.e., predicting the future is, uh, hard)?  Preparing
an integrated HDA codec is straightforward, but what for a USB audio
