    From todays Fedora kernel changelog :-

    * Sat May 17 2008 Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>
    - Disable CONFIG_SND_PCSP (#447039)

    Problem solved :-)

    More seriously, it doesn't seem that there's any way we can build
    this driver modular without it screwing up already working systems
    unless we cripple its MODULE_ALIAS to not autoload, allowing users
    who care about it (which will be in the minority anyway) to add it manually.
