Hello.

I will report this to the kernel ML soon, but first I wanted to check if someone here is experiencing the same issue around here.

Yesterday I compiled 3.18 (vanilla) and after rebooting I noticed that sound stopped working. Everything seemed normal, alsamixer showed all the channels as always, aplay -l reported the usual stuff, levels normal, nothing muted (I tried toggling it off and back on, no change).

Code:
# aplay -l                                                             
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC883 Digital [ALC883 Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 6: Si3054 Modem [Si3054 Modem]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


The only strange thing I saw was that, at the end of the dmesg output, something like this appeared:

Code:
hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #1. Suggest a bigger bdl_pos_adj


I duckduckgoed a bit and saw some old threads from 2008-2012 that exposed a different problem (they only had the beep in alsamixer, I see all my channels as usual...).

With 3.17.4 it was working, so I updated that three to 3.17.6 and booted that kernel, and it works again. It looks like a regression in .18.

FWIW, my sound is working fine with 3.18.0

I lost sound on one system with 3.17.x, but haven't had time to look into it, I just reverted the kernel. I had to jump through some hoops to get sound to use the hdmi output of the video card instead of the on-motherboard sound. I figured something about the new kernel changed the enumeration and broke those older workarounds. One of these days I'll look into it.

I have been waiting to see if this fixed magically, but it's definite: my sound is gone for good in 3.18.x, 3.19 and the 4.0 first RC.

Headphones work, though. Which means that they once more managed to break the mixer.

In case someone stumps into this in the future, this is the bug report:

(still no fix)
