As has already been explained to you (you _do_ read these messages in 
their entirety, right?), the old driver has been obsoleted.  You need 
to take the functionality that you want from the old driver and 
implement it in the newpcm code.

seem to have a slightly more specialised requirement that's not yet 
being catered to that does require some more attention.
