Hm, looks like the codec communication got screwed up by some reason.

This commit itself is unlikely relevant, I guess.
It's only for single-cmd mode, which is the last fallback if the
codec communication fails.  That is, if this change does have any
influence, it means that the device is already in a weird status.

Could you give output (run with --no-upload option)
on the working (2.6.30.x) kernel?

Also, what module options do you give to snd-hda-intel?
