After updating gentoo-sources from 4.1.16 to 4.1.17 (make oldconfig, no changes), I noticed some mixers went missing or changed when using amixer or alsamixer. More specifically, there was a "Line" option available in alsamixer which could be modified or unmuted/muted, allowing playback of audio input to the "Line In" jack of the soundcard. I'm not sure if this is a kernel bug, or a configuration error, or something which shouldn't have been available in the past and got corrected, but I was actually using this funcionality. I did notice that there were many changes to ALSA/sound in the 4.1.17 update. Other than this, audio works fine.

Hardware is Realtek ALC1150 codec on Z97 Intel system.

I believe this patch may be the culprit, though I am not fully sure.

Unfortunate that functionality would be completely removed rather than adding a configuration option.
