Alsa breaks after kernel upgrade



There's a lot of postings about this problem, but when I read them they
all seem slightly different from each other... I'm getting very
frustrated (or I wouldn't be posting to this list).

Sound used to work fine.  Running Sarge distro kernel 2.6.8-2-386,
Alsa was happy.  Life was good.  Sndstat said:

$ cat /dev/sndstat
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.4 emulation code)
Kernel: Linux ws-cabajian 2.6.8-2-386 #1 Tue Aug 16 12:46:35 UTC 2005
i686
Config options: 0

Installed drivers:
Type 10: ALSA emulation

Card config:
Intel ICH5 at 0xdffffa00, irq 201

Audio devices:
0: Intel ICH5 (DUPLEX)

Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Timers:
7: system timer

Mixers:
0: Analog Devices AD1981B


Upgraded to new kernel, 2.6.14.7, built from source starting with
old .config.  Everything looked good...

alsaconfig is happy, finds card.  can store and restore settings.

NO SOUND.  Players play, buttons push, EQ graphics dance, everything
seems OK except NO SOUND.

$cat /dev/sndstat 
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.10rc1 emulation code)

Config options: 0

Installed drivers:
Type 10: ALSA emulation

Card config:
Intel ICH5 with AD1981B at 0xdffffa00, irq 209

0: Intel ICH5 (DUPLEX)

Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Timers:

Reboot to old kernel, everything works ok.

Is it the IRQ difference?  Where the heck is the config file, maybe if I
change it manually?
