Ok solved the problem an other way. This time I do not use make 
ps3_defconfig but make oldconfig. The kernel now is much bigger (and 
slower) but pulseaudio is working (so its no version conflict problem). 
If I run in the same problem again I will take your advices and try to 
locate the needed config entry.
