It fails to build because the alsa driver source has the expectation 
that pdev_archdata contains the same information as dev_archdata which 
on ppc includes references to the openfirmware tree.

Well, in 2.6.32 as shipped in squeeze that structure is blank. So rather 
unsurprisingly it ftbs. I am going to pull .38 to see how did this 
structure evolve over time.
