As we mentioned on IRC, ymfpci uses ac97_codec, which does not contain
the ac97_reset function.

2.2.14? Is that a typo? His was patch for 2.4.15-pre2...

Anyway, my comments per request:
The patch looks ok, but I wonder about the order in ymfpci_resume. You
load the mixer values -then- call ymfpci_download_image and
ymfpci_memload. It seems for the purposes of general sanity and
stability you would want to load the mixer values after doing those two
