(SOUND CMPCI)Regression with C-MEDIA 8338 Sound card

Description of problem:
With most programs, I get insane static on my sound card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is reproducible with several programs. Any ARTS program will show this
behavior. sndconfig never shows it. So this might not be a kernel bug, but it
just seems too wide-spread. Weird. (Read below for more info.)
Under RHL 7.1, this card was auto-detected and functionned properly. Under 7.2,
it is still auto-detected, but it has problems. When KDE boots up, for example,
the intro sound is played, but with a LOT of static, noise. Same goes for XMMS.
I tried sndconfig, and it auto-detected my card again properly. Funny thing is,
the sound test with Linus did not have any static. I tried XMMS with different
output plugins, including OSS, and all of them had problems. I also got good
sound with Maelstrom once, no static at all. But Chromium gives me static.
So most of the time, there is insane static. But under some circumstances, it
is ok. I would like this fixed in 8.0 and I can do any tests you need.
Thanks a lot!
