Subject: problem with codec discovery on HP 2530p

I recently moved from to the 2.6.32-rcX series on my HP EliteBook 
2530p.  Audio didn't work, and I've finally made time to track down the 
problem.  It turns out the problem actually started with 2.6.31-rc1, due
to a patch that was part of the 2.6.30-rcX series but apparently wasn't in
the 2.6.30 stable release.  

The symptom is:

HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: power state changed by ACPI to D0
HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: irq 30 for MSI/MSI-X
HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: setting latency timer to 64
hda-intel: Codec #0 probe error; disabling it...
hda-intel: spurious response 0x0:0x0, last cmd=0x0f0000
hda-intel: no codecs initialized
hda-intel: spurious response 0x0:0x0, last cmd=0x0f0000
HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: PCI INT A disabled

The codec in this machine is an AD1984A.  Bisecting, I discovered that 
reverting this single commit fixes things for me in 2.6.32-rc6:

8174086167d43d0fd7b21928074145ae1d15bbab is the first bad commit

    ALSA: hda - Allow concurrent RIRB access in single_cmd mode
    In the single_cmd mode, the current driver code doesn't do any update
    for RIRB just for any safety reason.  But, actually the RIRB and
    single_cmd mode don't conflict.  Unsolicited events can be delivered
    even while using the single_cmd mode.
    This patch allows the handling of unsolicited events with single_cmd
    mode, just always checking RIRB independent from single_cmd flag.
