hi, sorry for jumping in late: what is/is not now in 4.8-stable
as far as the patches go to make the Asus P4P800 work?

I get as far as:

wkb at freebie ~: dmesg| grep pcm
pcm0: <Intel ICH5 (82801EB)> port 0xee80-0xeebf,0xe800-0xe8ff mem
0xfebff400-0xfebff4ff,0xfebff800-0xfebff9ff irq 10 at device 31.5 on pci0
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1985 AC97 Codec>
wkb at freebie ~: cat /dev/sndstat 
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Intel ICH5 (82801EB)> at io 0xfebff800, 0xfebff400 irq 10 bufsz 16384
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex)
wkb at freebie ~: 

But no sound, as reported earlier.

(who could use the PCI slot currently occupied by the sound
card for something else ;)
