Made a kernel with alsa sound support compiled in! I also compiled in the 
"generic" devices. Result: NO UNDEFINED. My three (a set ncards = 3) became 
dummy, virmidi and the ensonic. The ensonic did not play, however, but the 
alsa restore on bootup failed because of the 1st two. Kmixer settings are 
restored but have no effect.

So I am trying to build it with just the alsa core compiled in and hopefully 
the three cards will be the mpu401, usb-audio and ensonic loaded as modules 
as before. Wish this did not take so long to try out :-)
