Not necessarily; what is your output for "cat /proc/interrupts"?

Make sure that the module is unloaded (run "modprobe -r snd-intel8x0" if
necessary), then load it again and activate the buggy_semaphore
workaround:

modprobe snd-intel8x0 buggy_semaphore=1

Does that eliminate "semaphore is not ready" messages?

Yes, this eliminates them.
Now I get these error messages:

Apr 20 08:49:26 leva kernel: PCI: Enabling device 0000:00:02.7 (0000 ->
0001)
Apr 20 08:49:26 leva kernel: ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:02.7[C] -> GSI
18 (level, low) -> IRQ 233
Apr 20 08:49:27 leva kernel: AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET
Apr 20 08:49:27 leva kernel: AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff],
removing mixer.
Apr 20 08:49:27 leva kernel: Unable to initialize codec #0
Apr 20 08:49:27 leva kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:02.7
disabled
Apr 20 08:49:27 leva kernel: Intel ICH: probe of 0000:00:02.7 failed
with error -5

Thanks!

It was a bad BIOS, after updating it works ok. Sorry for the noise.
