I switched from 3.6.33 on both sabayon and archlinux distros and both suffer the same symptom of no audio.
:: Saving ALSA Levels [BUSY]
/usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1504: No soundcards found.. [DONE]
:: Restoring ALSA Levels [BUSY]
/usr/sbin/alsactl: load_state:1610: No soundcards found...... [FAIL]
Setting default volumes...
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
and if I try to force it by adding snd_hda_intel to modules I hang on boot.
also going to attach dmesg ........
reinstalled 3.6.33 and problem is gone, went back to 3.6.34 and broken.
after no luck fixing it on archforum I was told to post it "upstream" so here it is.
thanks for all of the work you do.
let me know if any more info is required.

The fix is already in sound git tree and in the pull request (including cc to stable tree).

sweet.... Im a n00b so dont exactly know what that means lol.
Is the patch going to be in a revision of 2.6.34 or in .35 when its released???
I made a request with my distro to see if I could get the patch included in their kernel since I dont know how to apply it.
It's already in sound git tree, but not in 2.6.35 just because Linus is on vacation. It'll hit to 2.6.34 stable tree later once after it's merged to 2.6.35.
Fixed by commit fbe618f216830f47b183858c3380d4767b1ad02f .
Please tell me, will it be appeared in 2.6.36?
