This is how I replace the alsa stuff in the kernel source:
1. checkout the "alsa-kernel" module from the alsa-project cvs. Go to
http://alsa-project.org/download.php for instructions.
2. cd into the kernel tld
3. move the sound/oss dir to some safe location
4. remove the "sound" directory
5. copy the checked out "alsa-kernel" dir into the kernel tld and rename
6. remove "sound/oss" directory
7. move the "oss" dir from step 3 back into the "sound" dir
8. remove include/sound
9. move sound/include dir into the include dir.
10. unless I missed something you can now build and install kernel as usual.
