Are you using udev? If you are, did you upgrade your udev?
I don't know what do you mean with crash. But any time I update
kernel and reboot with the new one, I need to run alsaconf again to
set the right driver and modify the modules stuff (which is an easy
proccess through alsaconf). If I don't do this sound doesn't work.
If you have tried this already, please disregard my comment. If not,
then it's an easy trial. Now if this is the problem, I think there's
no way to launch alsaconf on the kernel upgrade itself since a reboot
is required to launch the new kernel, so I believe this has to be
manually done, well if you experience this problem I do on any kernel
upgrade. This is independant of udev usage for me. I had to do this
in old hotplug times, and I have to do it in new udev times as well...
