Fixed kernel sources have been prepared, but it doesn't appear that they've
even been uploaded yet to unstable; they certainly haven't reached testing
yet, and the kernel-image packages are definitely a way off.  You'd want to
check with the debian-kernel list for any sort of firmer timeline.

Neither my memory nor a quick google search turns up any promising hits over
the past year.  You would probably need to run this question by
debian-kernel as well, since they're the ones responsible for kernel
maintenance -- you might also want to provide more information about the
specifics of your sound hardware, as I don't know if a reference to Miata
will tell them any more than it told me.
