[PlanetCCRMA] hdsploader and Fedora 12

Here is some follow-up....

First of all, when I unload and then reload snd-hdsp the card is no 
longer found, even though it remains listed on lspci.

Fedora 8 initializes the hdsp upon bootup. The card works properly. 
However, hdsploader returns "device busy" error.

I can boot fedora 8 and load the firmware, then reboot into fedora 12 
and the multiface appears to remain initialized. hdspmixer crashes 
however. BUT, if I run the version of hdspmixer found in my fedora 8 
install, it runs and all seems to be working. The hdspconfig works 
properly by the way. the hdspmixer is version 1.6 in both fedora 8 and 
12 installations. Of course the alsa versions are different. My fedora 8 
install uses 1.0.16-1  and fedora 12 is using 1.0.22-1. I must conclude 
that there is a problem with alsa 1.0.22-1 as packaged in fedora 12 in 
my situation (64-bit quad core intel system)

That's my report.....any help from the community is GREATLY appreciated!
