Yes - sure - but this is not what i mean or we have discussed.
This piece of source can be found at kernel.org - like described in the 
Debian wiki.
But it is not part of the compiled kernel - so the kernel must not be 
compiled new to use it.
It is dynamically loaded by the external kernel driver.

Another question is if a CSxx chipset can't be supported by Debian, if 
only one file can't be shipped with the distribution?
The kernel driver is still part of the distribution, only the firmware 
file is missing.

But it seems that the IEC859-Problem is based in the sources of ALSA, so 
it is not a problem of Debian.
If someone want to follow the bug at ALSA here it is:
