I may have something useful to contribute:

Last night I upgraded from Om2008 (stable and fully updated) to
Om2008-testing.  Sound seemed to be working during a test phone call,
but an SDL program I wrote which uses SDL for the sound didn't,
claiming "No available audio device".  "aplay" could play things fine.

I switched to a kernel which I'd compiled myself, with "-taw" in the
name (hence having a separate directory full of modules), and now it
seems to be back to normal.  The GTA01 message is still there, but
there's a "device list" which I don't THINK was there when it was

Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.15 (Tue Nov 20
19:16:42 2007 UTC). ASoC version 0.13.1
Only GTA01 hardware supported by ASoc driver
wm8753: WM8753 Audio Codec 0.16
asoc: WM8753 HiFi <-> s3c24xx-i2s mapping ok
asoc: WM8753 Voice <-> Bluetooth mapping ok
ALSA device list:
  #0: neo1973-gta02 (WM8753)

So - is it possible there's a "simple" kernel modules mix-up?
