Yup, been using it all the time with 2.1.x. My boot scripts determine the version of the running kernel and automatically copy the corresponding conf.modules version to /etc/conf.modules

I won't do that unless Linus, Alan or Hannu gives me a good explanation why a particular piece of the sound code has become sensitive to overclocking during the 2.1.xx developement process.

I did something else insted:
- defined DEB(x) and DDB(x) to x
- inserted a printk(KERN_DEBUG "sbintr: IMODE_OUTPUT\n"); to the switch-case in sbintr()

What I get is loads of the following sequence:
sound_write(dev=3, count=16384)
sound_write(dev=3, count=16384)

A sound_write() call followed by four sbintr() calls, until it hangs. When it hangs, it hangs after the first sbintr() following a sound_write()

I have a few megs of syslogs with this sequence.

Any ideas, anyone?
