I started to have somewhat similar problems with sound on my laptop when
I switched to kernel 2.6.17. After playing around unsuccessfully with
/etc/modules and /etc/modprobe.d I finally decided to try building all
my sound modules into my intird. The problem went away after that. I
have no idea if this is a general solution or just a quirk of my
particular configuration. (Intel 82801DB AC'97 integrated audio

(If you run a stock kernel then the initrd can get changed when you
 upgrade certain other packages, so that would at least explain how the
 problem can come and go from time to time.)
