 I had a quick look through those, and tried manually undoing
 the change made in revision 1.15 (which sets the stream mode to PCM by
 default), without any success so far (i.e. digital mode works, the
 default analog mode does not).  If no one has any better ideas, I'll
 try building kernels from various times in the last few months and see
 if I can narrow down the range of possibly responsible commits, but it
 might be a little while before I have time to do that.
 A question though; if, as Jared McNeill seemed to imply earlier, analog
 mode is considered obsolete, do we invest effort in continuing to
 maintain it or should digital mode be made the default?
