On my laptop with

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High
Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

sound generally works, but with the kernel I still see
occasional sound errors, particularly when playing AVIs e.g.

[AO_ALSA] Write error: Broken pipe-0.003 9249/9249  4%  0%  0.7% 3 0                                   
[AO_ALSA] Trying to reset soundcard.

These errors have been occurring for the past four or five kernels, so
the pre-date the ALSA change.
