Description of problem:
Hi !!!

After the upgrade to the new kerner through up2date, the sound is not working on
my DELL Inspiron 8100 which comes with Mastro3. (KDE mode)

The Test sound or any other sound releated ones doesn't give any kind of errors
or sound, but the sound detection still shows that it had the Mastro3 as the
degfault one. But the MusicMatch does responded back saying that no sound server
running. If I boot with the original kerner that came with default installtion,
everything works.

Also, during the boot time, I get the following error for eth0(Xircom 10/100),
though the network works fine with me for browsing and other stuff.

Bringing up loopback interface:  succeeded
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device eth0 ; No such device.
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device eth0 ; No such device.

Determining IP information for eth0...
 dhclient: Bind socket to interface: No such device <27>Oct 31 
 SIOCSIFADDR: No such device


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start with the new kernel

I can confirm that after up2dating to the new kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0 sound
stops working. When starting 'gnome-volume-control' some 5 processes ('sox')
are started and these are not stopped when closing the 'gnome-volume-control'
window. Futhermore CPU usage goes up to 100%.

This is on a Dell I8100 laptop with the Maestro3 soundchip.

This looks like a kernel bug.  Actually, it looks like a dupe of bug 76171.  An
errata is available that fixes the problem.
