What do you mean "releasing the soundcard"?  Closing the PCM stream,
or unloading the module, or at shutdown?

Hm, this sounds like some interrupt issue, then.  After all, switching
to the polling-mode happens because the expected interrupt didn't
arrive in time.  If a similar problem happens in the PCM stream, too,
it might be some other generic interrupt problem.
