No, because this has been specifically requested to be in and is the reason
there is a quite recent thinkpad-acpi driver in Lucid. It is the way forward to
make the internal hw mixer usable.
It might be a reason to see whether the lbm alsa loading might be fixable. But
would TPs really need latest ALSA?
