Hmm.  Really?  I understand that 
/etc/hotplug/blacklist.d/linux-sound-base_noOSS is to blacklist the 
OSS modules.  But for /etc/hotplug/blacklist.d/alsa-base, I read it 
the alsa-base changelog:

     - Add *ALSA* modem drivers to alsa-base's hotplug and discover
       blacklists. These drivers cause problems when loaded on some
       systems. They should be loaded when needed by the programs
       that use them.

(emphasis mine).  That's from the 1.0.8+1.0.9rc2-1 changelog entry.
