Buzzing snd_emu10kx enabled card with r206173

    When I first installed FreeBSD on this machine, I had a heck of a
time getting the soundcard's PCM channel to function properly. It
would buzz incessantly when I played any audio on it; I disabled the
onboard snd_hda enabled audio and things magically worked, until
today. After a kernel upgrade and a few warm boots, I'm back to where
I started from -- the PCM channel buzzes whenever I play audio;
line-in works perfectly fine however. I'm not seeing anything out of
the ordinary in commits over the past couple of weeks for the pcm
pieces (the last successful kernel I used was 2~3 weeks old).
    Are there any device_printf's I should add or a debug procedure
that you recommend I do to triage the situation?
