SubjectTropez under 2.1.90

I have several questions about the modularized Tropez drivers (mad16,
ad1848, maui) under 2.1.90.

a) Random digital-sounding noise appears in very small bursts, often
like clicks, which roughly correlate with large video actions (focus
change, new window, virtual screen change, etc) under XF86. Is this a
known problem? FWIW It didn't happen under 2.1.58. (if not digital,
could some mixer channel be accidentally left open to pick up
ambient emi from other boards ? )

b) The firmware code (sound_firmware.c) appears to assume that the
card operating system microcode will be less than 64K. For the Maui,
the code is ~94K resulting in an "Invalid firmware" message when the
module is loaded. Is it safe to increase this number(seems to work),
or am I flirting with death by crossing some memory segment boundary ?

thanks,
Matt Martin
