After building today's -CURRENT OK (and observing that the behavior was
still the same for my custom kernel), I tried building a GENERIC kernel.
Much to my surprise (and different from my experience on 06 July --
last time I had built a GENERIC kernel for -CURRENT), that kernel did
not exhibit the symptoms.
I've now managed to circumvent the problem by:
* Removing the "device pcm" specification in my custom kernel config.
* Adding the lines
* Re-building the kernel. (cd /usr/src; make kernel KERNCONF=LAPTOP_30W)
It took a few tries to get things quite right, but sound works again;
thanks to the patch in http://www.FreeBSD.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=26854,
I'm (still) able to use the keyboard Fn+End chord to mute the sound
during boot (so that process is less disruptive in meetings). (BTW, it
would be nice to get that tiny little patch in before 4.4-R. Please?)
And yes, Linux emulation still works.
