Briefly, something in drivers/sound/lowlevel failed to get merged with
the rest of a sound driver patch. This triggered a bug in menuconfig,
which triggered a bug in awk.

I have a patch in Linus's "pending" queue for the menuconfig bug.
He has a reservation about it. I wrote him about it, but have gotten
no response.
