What about PulseAudio?  That's certainly not part of the kernel, and
many people have reported having problems with it.

I had no sound from my Audigy card until I went to the volume control
and de-selected "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack", which I don't
remember having had to do before.  I still don't know if any of the more
exotic things I tried first had any effect, although it's all good now.
