I am using debian stable with self compiled kernel. With 4.16.4 I had a
terrible experience with audio devices. I went back to 4.15.8 and just
recently installed 4.17.13. With 4.17.13 everything is fine.
I usually download the source and do
cp <old_config> .config
to produce the binaries.
You can check the kernel change log. IMO there must have been some work on
audio stack, but I did not look into the detail.
