You need to change the "release" of the package to be bigger than the
one that Planet CCRMA offers (yours is 0.9.6-2.cvs, Planet CCRMA's is
0.9.6-2.cvs.rh90, which rpm thinks is "newer" than yours). Just change
the release to be "3.cvs" and you should be good.

Yup, it tries harder (I guess) to satisfy dependencies. It does not
overwrite your alsa-kernel but it just wants to make things work so it
tries to install a matching alsa-kernel _and_ the kernel it needs (the
redhat kernel with capabilities enabled).
