currently ATrpms has no kernel modules built for CCRMA's FC2 kernels,
because they had been released only as testing, and Nando (and others)
didn't yet like FC2's and kernel 2.6.x current latency performance
(for good reason).

If this has changed and there is a recommended CCRMA kernel for
FC2/2.6.x I'll gladly build kernel modules for it. But I think the 2.6
kernels are still in development and the recommended path for quality
audio is to stay with FC1 and the ccrma kernels (for which there also
exists kernel module support at ATrpms including ipw2100).
