Nod. I take it things were working for you at least as recently as
2.6.22, then. I can try that version and see if it works for me. My
situation is that I can't swear I've tried anything involving ALSA on
the Alpha since 2.6.16 until recently, so I'm not sure this is really a
regression in my case.

Because I threatened to do it :-), I built a 2.6.25-rc4+iommu_patch
kernel with both the snd-es18xx and snd-sb8 modules available. As
hoped (expected?), the snd-sb8 driver works fine. This would imply
the problem is at least somewhat specific to the es18xx driver, and
that the underlying ALSA infrastructure is reasonably healthy (notice
that I intentionally avoided saying it was "sound" -- sorry, I never
could pass on low-hanging fruit).
