I'm assuming your previous kernel did not build alsa directly into the
kernel image, so you probably have the alsa modules from the kernel in
/lib/modules/ along with your new externally built modules (i.e. two
sets of alsa modules in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/).
Firstly, did you run 'depmod -a' to update the modules database?
Search /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ for alsa to see if you have two versions
(I'm guessing so). If from a package (like alsa-modules or alsa-driver),
you could un-install the old drivers by removing this package. But if
they were built as modules from the kernel, then you could just delete
them (and re-run depmod -a) or you could rebuild your kernel (though
unnecessary, just delete the modules).
If all else fails, on boot up you could rmmod the alsa driver and insmod
the _full path_ to your new module..
