I went out and got a new set of headphones and have verified that
hardware is still working.  The update seems only to have killed the
external mic / speakers.  Unfortunately for me, I need the external
mic / speakers for conferencing.

One thing that I did not mention wrt the initial effort to restore
sound after the upgrade.  The community previously had a 2 step
process for 10.04 LTS (in step 1, prior to getting into submitting a
bug report).  The first step was typically sufficient and, on the
occasion that it was not, the second has always until now restored my
sound.  The current documentation has changed and only contains a
single step for 10.04 LTS.  If anyone has access to the older
documentation or can point me to it I would like to see if the
previous documentation still works.
