I tend to be OK with this, although alsaconf appears to be the way to
configure ISA sounds cards. I know it's like 0.2% of our users, but we
should not leave them in the cold. Takeshi may give us more ideas on why
alsaconf is still a good idea. If it's just ISA stuff, we should get it
patched only to detect and config isa stuff, and do nothing if it's PCI
or USB stuff.
