I tried using the added drivers for bt87x (Bt878/Bt879 TV card audio).
I get the following (manual line break):

    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure alsa-source
    Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at \
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/alsa-source.config line 118, <STDIN> line 7.

and in /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf

    ifndef ALSA_CARDS
    ALSA_CARDS="Bt878/Bt879 TV cards, emu10k1"

which fails while compiling:

    checking for which soundcards to compile driver for... \
    Unknown soundcard Bt878/Bt879, exiting!

This got closed-as-NMU by accident. It was fixed in 1.0.2c-3, whose
changelog is included below:

 alsa-driver (1.0.2c-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * David B. Harris:
     - Brown paper bag upload.
     - debian/alsa-common.templates:
       + Put module name where it's supposed to be, instead of a descriptive
         string. This broke debconf configuration for some people.
         (Closes: #232942)
