The auich driver doesn't handle Compaq AC-97 sound cards correctly. This seems
to be a hardware problem, but I think a quirk should be possible. I heard that
the problem is corrected in current but it could be ported to NetBSD 1.6.2.
Here is dmesg output :
auich0 at pci0 dev 31 function 5: i82801AA (ICH) AC-97 Audio
auich0: interrupting at irq 11
auich0: ADS96 codec; headphone, Analog Devices Phat Stereo
audio0 at auich0: full duplex, mmap, independent

The card seems to be overclocked, and it's really useless...

By the way, the mixerctl outputs.headphones.mute should be off by default.

Try to play any audio file on NetBSD/i386 1.6 (1.6 branch) with an i82801AA
based sound card.
