Bug#476766: linux-image-2.6.24-1-alpha-generic: Alpha using sound driver causes kernel OOPS

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-alpha-generic
Version: 2.6.24-5
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Playing a sound file via alsa sound devices for the second time causes mmio related kernel OOPS on certain Alpha architectures.  Observed on miata (PWS600au) while playing via onboard es1888/7 sound chips and on Tsunami (XP1000) when playing sound through certain sound cards (but onboard es1888 seems to work okay!).  Rated the bug as critical as it causes kernel OOPS and often takes out the complete system.  This issue is fixed in kernel 2.6.25.  Patch is available as commit c143d43aa3149b83e4b40624a27aa2b18638afec in Linus' git tree.  Would be nice to have this patch applied if 2.6.24 is going to be released in Etch+half and Lenny.
