modprobe snd-cs46xx error ALSA 1.0.17 with kernel 2.6.26-1-686

Kernel 2.6.26-1-686
Cirrus Logic cs46xx


*for the previous kernel 2.6.25-2-686 I could compile the audiodrivers without problems. After kernel-update 2.6.26-1-686 I repeated the same procedure without errors except the last step
modprobe snd-cs46xx

Following errors are given back:

WARNING: Error inserting snd_ac97_codec

[ *725.643964] snd_cs46xx: Unknown symbol snd_ac97_read

In lib/modules/2.6.26-1-686/modules.dep no snd_* is found.

No success with depmod -a 'uname -r', no further messages.

In /lib/modules/2.6.26-1-686 there is a file
but I cannot read it.

What can I do to make my soundcard work with ALSA?

Thank you for helping
