Hm, there shouldn't be a change regarding the volume control.
There can be an issue about PCM stream, e.g. in commit 
    ALSA: hda - Make converter setups sticky

To be sure, could you try to revert it?  If it doesn't help but still
you get strange volume behavior, please get alsa-info.sh output at
different volume levels for comparison.
