Tried load/unload/load sequences with no luck. Tried increasing all the
relevant delays within the ac97 and trident drivers, and while I think I've
found a bug in a small part of the ac97 driver (trivial, will post soon,
but isn't causing my problem), still no luck (even with load/unload/load
again). Any suggestions on where I should try delays in the code?

If this is a weird ac97 implementation, any suggestions on how I'd go about
figuring it out? Possible diagnosis utils and the like are always a boon,
even if I have to run Windows on the thing and figure out how it's doing
it. Since I have 2 of these machines, I can always run them in parallel and
compare stuff between.

Many thanks.
