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...
