The problem is slightly different than I thought. Turns out *both* the
internal (laptop) and external (docking station) speakers are active after
the resume. So the problem is that the internal speakers are not switched off.

I have traced this to an ALSA merge: 524df55725217. Unfortunately I get
boot failures when I try to bisect down into that merge.

Here's the bisect log:
