alsa annoyance

Rather than using the name for a specific soundcard the kernel requests services
like sound-card-0 or sound-slot-6. This way you aliase sound-card-0 to whatever
your primary soundcard is and the kernel will automatically load the modules
you require. If you don't want any autoloading happening either
alias sound-card-0 off
or compile kmod out of your kernel.
Regards, Kerry.
