SubjectRe: The Ultra Sound Driver
> What is planned in the sound driver area before 2.2?

I've just merged Michael Chastin's recent bits to make the config stuff
all start CONFIG_ and Thomas Sailer's giant "un-OSSifying" patch that
removes a lot of the OSS strange ways of doing things for Linux ways
[Hannu did stuff other ways for portability reasons to other OS's].
The resulting code is far easier to read.

I agree in principal but I've not merged those yet.

I hope so.
