What I'm not sure about if these are enough. There have been other
changes to the conexant driver. Also someone would need to port these
over and place them in the tree.

>From what I've seen the best way is to turn CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_ALSA
off and allow for alsa-backports to work. This feature doesn't even work
on any newer Thinkpad. It also doesn't do much for older Thinkpads at
the moment. As I said .. I'm talking up removing it completely upstream,
as it was trying to solve a problem at the wrong level.
