and i say: good catch! that does it!
i did "bk undo -a1.2000.5.108" on a current tree, booting this still gives
excluding this single ChangeSet with "bk undo -r1.2118" does work with
(the filename here should really read "...r1.2118.txt" because that was
the number of the changeset representing the above [PATCH] *after* i did
"bk undo -a1.2000.5.108". right?)

understanding a lot less of all this than you guys i also wonder why only
this single driver broke. i've always loaded a couple of drivers here,
maybe i could play around a bit e.g. CONFIG_SND_ENS1371=y instead of =m or
see if other hw drivers break too.

do userspace tools matter here? there is "sysfsutils-1.1.0-1" and
"libsysfs1-1.1.0-1" (both debian/unstable) installed here, /sys is mounted:
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
