Hi,
The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing and tell
us whether the problem persists. If so, we should report it upstream
to the kernel.org developers.

The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
installations.

Thanks,
Moritz

It still happens with 2.6.32. Is there an easy way to git bisect and
generate .debs of the kernels to test, or do I have to manually install
them?

which 2.6.32 version, tried 2.6.32-9?

indeed in upstream git: make deb-pkg

You should be able to install the kernel using
'make install modules_install'. You can build packages using 'make deb-pkg'
but I don't think that will be much easier.

Only 2.6.32-8 - -9 hasn't propogated to the mirrors yet. Has make deb-pkg
been around since 2.6.24, since that was where I was going to start
bisecting?

yes, you may need to call it with fakeroot in older linux-2.6
fakeroot -u make deb-pkg

I've bisected it, and the bad patch is 130755108ba03461f69da990e54e02a254accd23:

[ALSA] PCM - clean up snd_pcm_lib_read/write

Introduce a common helper function for snd_pcm_lib_read and snd_pcm_lib_write
for cleaning up the code.

I don't know anything about this code, but I'm happy to deal with upstream
if you'd prefer me to.

The above commit is supposed to be cleanup, but it has at least one
semantic change: snd_pcm_mmap_control::avail_min no longer applies to
non-blocking file handles. I don't know whether this is was an
intentional or unintentional change, but it wasn't commented. I also
don't know whether this can explain the popping, but I expect that it
has changed the timing of audio I/O.

The above change is essentially a fix of the buggy behavior for
non-blocking access. avail_min is the definition for wake-up
behavior, and it doesn't define the blocking behavior.
But, it's possible that this changes the timing, indeed. If so, it
implies that the app expects somehow wrongly.

Takashi
