If you are rebuilding for a pure fedora kernel you need to turn off the
"strictdeps" flag at the beginning of the alsa-driver spec file (set it
to "0"). My kernels provide that dependency so that it becomes
impossible to install kernel module packages with the wrong architecture
(ie: install i386 modules on top of a i686 kernel, for example). This
used to be a recurring problem a while ago.
