People who include this driver (either because they added it thinking
it wouldn't do much), or because their distro compiles lots of stuff
as module, could potentially get surprised, if it renumbers how the
soundcards are enumerated. On my system, my sound card ended up going
from hw:0 to hw:1, which given my ~/.asoundrc, meant that sound
appeared to be broken with errors such as this:

aplay: set_params:900: Sample format non available

Once I edited by ~/.asoundrc file to use hw:1 instead of hw:0 the
problem went away, so it's really not a kernel _bug_ per se, but the
result might be surprising. Maybe there should be a quick warning in
the Kconfig file? It's not that big of a deal, but I did end up
spending quite a bit of time trying to track down what I initially
thought was a regression.
