That is what it's called. If you open and read it, you might find
yourself convinced.

However, if you're unclear about such things, are you rather for the
rather arcane task of kernel compilation? What audio card driver--and
how is recompiling supposed to help you?

In other words, there might be a very good reason why it's not there,
especially as the Planet kernels are aimed at audio work.
