Interesting.  I've had another user report getting sound out of the latest
hg tree with an ALC268 both with test mode and the "auto" mode.  Our
continued failure to get anything out of your laptop over the last few
months makes me suspect that there's some other non-standard thing (external
to the ALC268 codec) linked to the sound system in your laptop which
prevents audio unless activated.  Takashi, what's your take on this?

This is strictly a driver-level issue; unless your libs are *really* ancient
(and from memory they aren't) it shouldn't matter.

Just to confirm, when attempting to use aplay, aplay appears to be working
but you get no sound - right?
