Description of problem:
There is one driver for intel ac97 controller: intel8x0m. It is
included into the alsa package 1.0.2+ - but it is not in the core
kernel yet. Could you pretty please include it as a patch to the
kernel. I am asking not only because of the sound card. This driver
allows to work SmartLink winmodems - WITHOUT installing proprietary
binary drivers (tainting kernel etc etc), just with user-space daemon

This winmodem is very often in Centrino-based laptops so I think many
people would be grateful to you.

The ideal solution would be to included slmodemd as well - but these
is binary-only object file linked, so I am not sure about the licensing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Just check the kernel, sound/pci directory

Push the ALSA guys to push it upstream instead.
If theres a reason its not there already, theres likely an equally
good reason for not including it in Fedora.
Comment 2 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-03-11 19:11:42 EST
There is no special reason here. AFAIK it just takes time to push new
driver (even working one) to the official kernel.
