The whole point is that I want to be able to use the wavetable
synthesis features of the card. Newpcm (or oldpcm, for that matter)
provides NO support for the AWE device whatsoever, as you can see
from your dmesg below.
It makes little sense to me that PnP functionality should be tied
down to a particular audio driver. Obviously, the newpnp code is
not as versatile as the oldpnp code was, because the oldpnp code
worked with my card regardless of whether I used snd or pcm.
I'm just suggesting here that it would be nice if the authors of
this code would make it _equally functional_ to what was removed.
It's not nice to remove functionality unconditionally and then
provide no replacement at all...
