The "gspcav1" doesn't need upgrading just because the kernel version
changed, it remains the same for all kernel version. The only reason
"gspcav1" would change would be an update of its own sources or a fix
in the package.

Also "gspcav1" pulls in the kmdl, the kmdl itself can and does work
w/o the userland part. Just like a kernel module for a sound card works
w/o you needing to install the sound utilities as well.
