Ah, right. It's a simply because I forgot to commit the patch
mistakenly. The power_save option must take integer as its timeout
value, just like for snd-hda-intel driver, as described in
Documentation/sound/alsa/powersave.txt.

The patch below is already applied to my git tree, thus for the next
release (will be included in linux-next soon).


thanks,

Takashi

Subject: [ALSA] ac97 - Fix power_save option value as time-out

The power_save option was set as boot although it was meant to be a
timeout value like the same option of snd-hda-intel originally.
Now fixed to the same style.
