spec files are at http://atrpms.net/dist/fc2/alsa-driver/. There isn't
anything special to 28, other than it being the 28th build (I don't
reset the build number when the version bumps).

I'd prefer fixing the situation for a clean apt/yum/up2date/rcd

I'd like to create a situation, where PlanetCCRMA superseeds ATrpms in
the choice of alsa bits (ATrpms needs alsa for the few users that
don't want to mix repos and the ones using ATrpms' kernels). Would you
bump the version up to above 28? For the next alsa-driver release I
could use a 0-prefixed release tag to ensure PlanetCCRMA always
superseeds. Is that a deal? :)
