SubjectRe: Linux-2.4.20-pre4-ac1: i810_audio broken
I'll check the CIV read-only thing with ICH4 tonight (maybe I've
overseen some doc errata or the manual is just lying). On the other
hand, the CIV register is set to zero on reset (AFAICS), maybe a DMA
engine reset sets CIV to 0 implicitly on ICH4.

But if CIV is really RO, I could add a CAP_CIV_RO define to the card_cap
struct. Then I'd only have to set LVI appropialty to CIV... hmmm....

BTW, sound is working perfectly on my machine (ICH4).
