Hm, the hardcoded string is no good thing.
It should be defined in the common header if it's used in multiple

I'm not 100% certain whether restrictng this in Kconfig is the correct
fix. Basically this doesn't stop building both drivers. In theory,
we can switch them dynamically.

But, it's the easiest way to avoid unnecessary bugs right now, so
let's merge it.

Err, no, this wasn't merged to sound git tree because apparently the
patch is to 2.6.22 and you didn't resubmit it...

No, I gave no ACK yet. The alsa-driver tree is our playground, and
the patch merged to that tree doesn't mean that I approved it for
linux-kernel merge.

I'd rather add a new line with a single "depends on SND_PCSP=n".
You see a clear difference in the art of dependencies, one for
architectures and one for driver-specific.
