Are you sure this is correct? include/asm/io.h seems to indicate that i/o
addresses for PCI may not map correctly. The sound card I am using is PCI,
not ISA.

Documentation/DMA-mapping.txt says that virt_to_bus is completly depreciated
and nothing should be using it. Well, grepping the kernel source shows that
quite a bit still uses it.

What it looks like, on first glance, is that virt_to_bus was changed for pci
devices to give this error message. (Since that symbol goes nowhere.) That
effects a number of things, not just sound. (A whole bunch of cardbus drivers
I would guess...)

When was this change made? It appears as if they missed a few bits.

Comment: 2.5.4 has been more than a bit rough. Rarely do i see more than one
patch needed just to get it to compile. Not trying to be bitchy about it.
Just a wee bit frustrated...
