HDA beep regression...

Hi Tim, Andy,

With newer mainline kernel builds (eg 2.6.33-rc) containing the new
HDA beep framework, a new config option was introduced that was set
on, re-introducing the (somewhat overzealous) system beep. With pulse
audio not reconfiguring the PC-beep channel volume, this often
saturates built-in or external speakers/headphones at undesired times
(eg when shutting down).

Is it reasonable to ask to change the Ubuntu mainline kernel configuration:


to =0, or, disable:


Many thanks,
Daniel J Blueman
