I still run 2.2. I had a quick look at the relevant 2.4 source
file and it seems that 2.4. _does_ implement power management :-)
for the driver in question.
I.e. the patch is _not_ needed for 2.4 kernels regarding the power
management issue (the most complex stuff).

Note however, that parts of the patch still might be useful, as
it also fixes some mixer related issues (see the cited webpage
for details)
