(hey welcome back!)
I hope so... But one thing about intel ac97 standard itself is stupid
incompatibility across different vendor. I'm afraid his problem is
because of incorrect mixer resolution detection. ac97.c (line 629)
trying its best to calculate *exact* resolution although already
predefined up there. In any case, we can simply ignore it and carry on
with predefined value (the detection mechanism should be fine though).
sigh.. I really hope it's about locking issue, which is easier to
mitigate as compare with that.
