I'm hitting a regression in hda-intel from 2.6.36 and 2.6.37 and Takashi asked me to update this bug. System is a 2010 Sony Vaio Z.

2.6.36 alsa-info, 2.6.37 alsa-info will be attached shortly.

Relevant /var/log/messages stuff from 2.6.36:

With 2.6.37, I get no usable device at all, PA shows only 'Dummy Output' as available.

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2010-12-17 13:54:34 UTC
indeed, that patch works, for my case at least. I guess Jesse's is the same - he doesn't provide enough info to be sure, but I know he has one system which is the same as mine, as he acquired a Vaio Z to work on graphics issues.

With the patch, sound devices show up, PA is happy (showing the HDA device and also the HDMI audio device), and sound works, as in 2.6.36.
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2010-12-17 14:02:41 UTC
actually it's an improvement, the HDMI device doesn't show up in 2.6.36.
Comment 10 Takashi Iwai 2010-12-17 14:59:13 UTC
Thanks for testing.  I merged the patch now to sound git tree, and will send a pull request later.

Excellent, thanks.  I'll try the patch too (sorry I haven't been able to provide the other info you asked for yet, it's been a busy week).
Comment 13 Jesse Barnes 2010-12-17 18:34:43 UTC
yep, that patch works for me too, thanks Takashi.
