We have a patch in F-12 for the Intel HDA audio but nothing for intel8x0. You can work around this by adding 'powersave=0' to the module options. I guess if this isn't fixed we can change the default back to 0.
I put the following in /etc/rc.local which solved the problem
$ echo 0 > /sys/module/snd_ac97_codec/parameters/power_save
Let me know if I should try something else
No workaround for AC97 seems to be available. Set the default to 0 in kernel-220.127.116.11-90.rc1.fc12
