snd-usb-audio supports devices which are conform to the usb audio specification.
If your device provides endpoints which are conform that driver can
handle the datatransfer to userspace for you.
You might still have to set up the audio source using the videointerface.

The em28xx also has an extra audio driver for non usb audio compatible
The same for the saa7134, the way how the audio data gets transferred
is just not specified in a generic specification for it that's why it
needs a special driver for it.

hope that helps,
