I don't know if this would be considered too ugly a suggestion to put
in the Kconfig description, but the suggestion in:

To put the following in /etc/modprobe.conf:

options snd-pcsp index=2

Would probably avoid confusion for most users. It's more than a
little bit hackish, and I imagine I can imagine hotplug/udev fanatics
throwing up all over their keyboard, but short of having udev rules
that run around editing user's ~/.asoundrc files, or creating some
kind of system wide naming scheme so that people can use stable names
in their alsa config files, this is going to be an, ah, "interesting"
problem for various sound applications to deal with.
