Mmm, yes, I do. Was on an Intel 430VX chipset with a PIIX3 last time and on 
a 430TX with the PIIX4 this time.

Indeed; it seems to be a well-known problem.

The Intel 430TX and 440BX (which also uses the PIIX4 if I'm not mistaken) 
were hugely popular chipsets in the later generation of boards that still 
had ISA slots and given that noone will deperately want the MPU-401 IRQ 
assigned; how would you feel about the attached? Just adds the preffered 
options minus the MPU IRQ as the first acceptable. Works for me...

I ran the driver through a complete test again. Playback, capture (from 
line, CD and mic), the OPL3 synth and MPU-401 out- and input (both with and 
without the MPU-401 IRQ) and all work fine. Feel free to add my signed-off 
to the ALSA part.

As to the PnP part; other than that IRQ9 thing everything also working fine 
and if you think the attached is ugly; I don't much care. I still have the 
possible objection with the BIOS maybe needing to know about the card anyway 
so it can route the IRQ to ISA (and the slight discomfort about Jazz16 code 
in drivers/pnp). But next iteration can be final.

If Adam still isn't commenting by then, let's just feed it through Andrew 
Morton and LKML.
