This has been a goal of Cross-LFS since it's inception, to make sure all 
devices are supported or a framework in place. I've gotten the 
2.6.15-rc2 stuff working with the rules and configuration suggested by 
Kay Sievers, but it can't be implemented until 2.6.15 comes out. This 
will take care of all the BLFS issues, but as I have been told numerous 
times, alsa is BLFS and not LFS, but it will be addressed in the new 
package once 2.6.15 is out.

This package was developed under the guidance of the Udev maintainer, 
and I hope the LFS will accept this package as well. I can send you a 
copy if you wish so you can see what the future holds.
