    It seems to all come in with the main driver for the ALC650. And it
    works pretty good once i got it figured out. Everything but the
    bt878 audio, which is so far down the s/s+n isn't more than 30 db.

    c0164376 isn't a label, but its in between these two in the
    c0164340 t prune_dcache
    c0164500 T shrink_dcache_sb

    But thats all I can deduce from here.

    I CC:'d this back to the list in case those two labels might mean
    something to someone else.
