I was not aware about this side effect. I just wanted to be sure that
the speaker is muted.

I would be more than happy if I could use for example the 'amixer'
command to setup the audio correctly without this patch.

For example - on this system - before I run any speaker test I need to
call: amixer -d set 'Speaker Mixer PCM',0 on

to unmute the system.

Ok. I will check this as well.

Thanks for your hints. I will investigate it further.

It looks like this patch is some kind of a hack, to fix my system
configuration and shall be dropped in v2.
