Hello list!

After upgrading to this kernel on my IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X61S, I do not
hear the system beep in the console any more. Booting into
kernel-PAE- fix the problem, however, I
really want to use the latest kernel, of course.

Also, I hear some scratching sound from the speaker every time I use
amixer set <device> level, and also during boot up and shut down.

Some loaded modules of interest is:

What can I do to get back to "normal" with the new kernel?
