You can find it in /usr/src/sys/dev/sound/pci/ich.c, in the function
ich_calibrate. The error ir reported because two subsequent readings
from a register return the same value. Maybe the assumption that
subsequent reads from that specific register should be different is invalid.

If you're into shotgun debugging you could try returning the default
value immediately from ich_calibrate, and see if it works. :-)
If you have another working soundcard, I'd plug that in, and disable the
onboard sound in the bios.
