    Thanks!

    Basically just see if you can produce a hang by repeatedly loading and
    unloading snd-nm256, preferably at a console, so you can see any Oops.
    If you do see the hang, try the reset_workaround options described in
    ALSA-Configuration.txt.

    If you can reproduce a hang add printks in the module __init code and
    try to narrow down where it dies.
