Also Cc'ed Fengguang, who worked on ELD stuff.

I also don't know of this problem. My initial thought was that the
work struct placed right after sink_eld in struct hdmi_spec_per_pin is
overwritten wrongly by reading some ELD data. But I failed to spot
out the bug...

Reading back through the thread, the problem seems triggered via usb
video cam. I wonder how this is connected to the HDMI audio.

To get things straight: does this bug happen even without HDMI, DP or
DVI cable plugged, i.e. only with the laptop without connecting to the
external digital output?

This means essentially the codec communication got stalled. This is a
bad signal. It happens often with a wrong HD-audio verb, but often
with a bad IRQ, whatever.

I'd need output (run with --no-upload option) for further
