Support for this soundcard has changed in Release 5.3.
Earlier Releases needed to configure
for this card.
But now it is neccessary to configure
"device sound" replaces the former "device pcm", but now "device
snd_ess" is also needed.
If only the former two drivers are included, then the card will be
detected, but the "sound" driver will not see the card and no device
nodes get created.
When loading runtime modules, only "snd_ess.ko" is necessary, and
will automatically load the other two.
