The sound of silence.. or not

I finally got around to porting my patch for the FreeBSD driver for Intel ICH chipsets to -CURRENT, and now I've got sound on my laptop again! For some reason, my 82801DB ICH4 chip does not want to play nice with FreeBSD's attempts to address its memory directly - could this be related to its being labeled as revision 2?

Anyway, if anyone else should stumble on the same problem, the patch I just sent to the mailing list may be found in my highly-unofficial patchsets in the src5 collection: here or here.

Next step: figure out why the USB drivers won't have anything to do with the USB serial port that I'm trying to plug in.
