Yes it does!  Thanks.

Several of the files in /usr/lib/ladspa have CMOVs.  I'll scan the rest 
of the system looking for them and let you know if I find any more.

And to correct an earlier mistake I made, it is a C3 "Ezra" core 
processor.  Centaur is the vendor id.  For reference here is /proc/cpuinfo

[root@blumlein ladspa]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : CentaurHauls

Thanks for the alsa upgrade.  Now I can go over to alsa-dev and take up 
the noise problem with the delta1010 at high sample rates.
