Installing ALSA modules on Debian is actually very easy IMO. If 
you compiled your custom kernel, which you probably did because of
latency and capabilites patch, you should have used "make-kpkg" from
the package "kernel-package". If you then install alsa-source and
extract the alsa-driver.tgz in /usr/src, you can just issue a 
"make-kpkg modules_image" to build the ALSA modules. Install the
resulting alsa-modules package, run alsaconf and your ready to rock'n
roll. ;)
