Please note that we (Debian alsa maintainers) are working on getting OSS
drivers onto discover's blacklist as well as hotplug's.  We have
succeeded in doing this for discover1.  (discover1 now reads
configuration from /etc/discover.d/* and we have added an
/etc/discover.d/alsa-base file to alsa-base.)  For discover, it appears
that we will have succeeded when the next discover release happens.
