What is planned in the sound driver area before 2.2?

There were some discussion about use of request_module calls from the
sound driver vs enhancements to kerneld. I did not check if modutils
fix these problems. IMHO use of request_module will make the sound
using conf.modules simpler, more flexible and also more robust.

Is there a chance that isapnp will get into a distribution kernel before
2.3.0? This will enable big improvements to the sound driver.
If isapnp is going to be in, IMHO it should be as soon as possible (but
under a config option) even if it is not production quality yet.
