Yingying Zhao (yingying-zhao) wrote :

The DeviceID patch for LynxPoint HDA was already included in kernel 3.5. Beyond that, more patches to enable HDMI and DP audio are WIP.

These three patches have been accepted in alsa upstream now:
1. http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kmirror.git;a=commitdiff;h=cb192625233496ac3d96cce667ebf4e322dab678
this patch add proper id for Haswell HDA Controller.

2. http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kmirror.git;a=commitdiff;h=e269cee227a2b2297b79bfc71094c709b9387061
0x80862807 is HDMI id for Haswell HDA.

3. http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kmirror.git;a=commitdiff;h=79fc901301d6115b11457e8240ed6abc4b3f5c65
This works for HDMI audio, otherwise there's blocking issue.

We detected an PCI ID change of Haswell HDMI audio device on Shark Bay Mobile system after upgrading to Beta stepping.

Thanks xiongzhang, I've filed bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1095242 to see if we can get it into 3.5.

please backport following four pathes to raring, so that HDMI and DP audio can work on HSW-ult which use Lynx Point core also, I have verified it on HSW-ult sdv.

Answer from Intel:

"Hi David and Xiong,

This patch is a BIOS/board specific fix-up for some Haswell machines, which have both HDMI and Display Port output but BIOS only enables first pair of audio codec pin & cvt by mistake.

If OEM vendor overrides the PCI SSID, this patch will not work.
If OEM or future Intel BIOS enables the pin & cvts properly according to board design, this patch is not needed.

I think Haswell ULT patch request from comment #8 should be a different bug, or we should make it clear that this bug is now about Haswell ULT specifically (It looks like it was opened for just Haswell audio support which we already have).

XiongZhang (xiong-y-zhang) wrote :

Hi, James:
I think that this bug is for Lynx Point Audio which is a PCH, Lynx Point is used both on Haswell platform and Haswell-ULT platform. So I add the patch request in here. Maybe we can add another bug for HDMI and DP support on Haswell-ULT. The new bug depend on this bug. What's your opinion ?
