There's been a bug on this chip's driver for at least four years.


There are two ThinkPad 600X's in my home that have the problem. The chip 
is also in the ThinkPad A20m, A20p, A21m, A21p, A22m, A22p, T20, T21 and 
T22... and probably other brands as well.

In the 600X, it happens to be paired with a CS4297A... hey, should I just 
try to get Linux to use that? (I use Fedora BTW.) How would I try to do 

Or... better still... how would I get either the '97A driver installed 
automatically by soundcard detection, or failing that, actually fix the 
driver? (I am a software developer who has written machine code for fun.)
