Get the Ubuntu source code for the package that owns that ALSA driver,
find the place in the driver's initialization code where ac97_quirk=7
is handled, then check the driver's suspend and resume callbacks and
make sure the suspend callback is correctly saving the LED state and
that the resume callback is re-initializing the LED from the saved
state in the same way the init code does.  grep and printk() are your
friends ;-)
