I did this on my laptop since I needed a new kernel there for
video4linux testing, but it looks good enough that I am going to drag
the ck-sources kernel sources over to my Planet box and see how it
runs with my HDSP 9652. Should be fun to compare against Fernando's
newest PlanetEdge kernel when he's ready to release.

I should have mentioned that the previous method of loading realtime
doesn't seem to be working automatically. I seem to have to su to root
and modprobe it by hand. That's probably some oversight on my part and
most likely will get fixed pretty soon.
