Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-09 12:33:59 UTC
the kernel spews these messages to so that the owners of the programs
get notified they haven't converted to the new ALSA interfaces yet.

the goal for fedora is to move all our own software to the new alsa
interfaces; this is a debug trap to make sure we catch everything
