Unless someone can chime in with details of the commits which changed,
assuming "the magic change" will be MFC'd is a bad one.  It's safe to
say that when 8.3-RELEASE comes out if this problem haunts you again,
you will be mailing the list about it, and this cycle will continue
until 9.0-RELEASE comes out.

Does any developer/committer have familiarity with this issue and have
some ideas as to what may have changed in CURRENT that addresses David's
issue?  And if so, can that code be MFC'd safely or patches provided to
David for RELENG_8 that he can try out?

I'm CC'ing mav@ here (snd_hda(4) says he's one of the authors), although
he may not have any knowledge of the code which may need to be MFC'd.
He may be able to point us to who has a better idea though.
