Does the emu10k1 driver support the new DMA interface? I've
downloaded the patch-2.4.13-pre1-pre2.bz2 from

and checking it, it seems that the BIG change was the inclussion of
David Miller 64-bit DMA. Does emu10k1 use DMA for SPDIF output? the
main change affecting dma when HIGHMEM is enabled is in types.h, that
define dma_addr_t as a u64 instead of u32, so does the hardware in the
live or the driver (or whatever :-) support that?
