    SubjectLoud screech after reboot of 2.2.18-pre22

    I have a Sony VAIO Z505JE with ymfpci sound and built-in microphone
    and speaker. Everything worked fine with 2.2.17 plus ymfpci patch,
    but the 2.2.18-pre22 produces a loud screech starting as sound
    initializes and ending when startup scrips load mixer settings.
    This happens because of audio loop between microphone and speakers.

    I found that the culprit is the change to values of array
    mixer_defaults[] in ac97_codec.c, that happened in 2.2.18-pre.

    Currently I run the following patch:

    I wonder if there is a better way?

    In the interests of full disclosure let me mention that YMFxxx do have
    internal loopbacks that may produce the same effect and that I checked
    to the best of my ability that those loopbacks are muted. Therefore
    I conclude that the loopback happens inside the AC97 (if such a thing
    is possible).
