you may for your own interest want to drag down the latest git kernel 
branch (linus - not alt branch) it has the been running some of the 
already noted bugs in 2.6.15 and is pretty much what will end 
up (bar some x86_64 stuff removal).

I've been running against this scince just before 2.6.15 and the network 
device problem is removed, although I can't confirm the sound device 

Its probably better to test against this as this is %99 what 
will become rather than against the patches (incase they are different).

This of course is not to say don't test against the patches, just 
offering an alternate thought.
