can't adjust volume with Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller after updating to linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.31

Bug Description

After installing the prior version of linux-alsa-driver-modules, sound worked (it was played trough my internal speakers, i could adjust the volume, but the speakers didn't mute, if i plugged in headphones).
After updating the kernel and likewise to linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.31, headphones don't work anymore, I can't adjust the volume (it's on if the volume is >0 or off, no steps in between) and sound doesn't work anymore at all, if I tried to play flash movies (eg. youtube) in firefox (in the audio-settings there is an entry "alsa-plugin").
I expect
-the volume to be adjustable (like before),
-the headphones to be working and if they are plugged in: the internal speakers to be muted
-sound played through alsa-plugin not to crash the audio-system

After installing linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.31-20-generic, according to my kernel version, i can adjust the volume again and flash in firefox works, too.
One problem remains: When i plug in my headphones, the internal speakers are not muted.
I think the problem is related to the following issue: In AlsaMixer for playback devices, I can see (amongst others) Master Front, Headphone, PCM, Front, Front Mic and Mic. The "Master" slide behaves correctly (the overall volume is controlled), the "Headphone" slide is without function (the value has no effect on the headphone's volume), "PCM" also controls overall volume, "Front" controls both, internal speakers and headphones, "Front Mic" doesn't affect normal playback, but "Mic" behaves like an alternative slide for "Master" (If the last volume setting is made with "Master", it's value is taken, if the last volume setting is made with "Mic", the "Mic"-value is taken).

after the multiple updates in the last weeks, the problem remains with unmuted internal speakers, not working microphone and the mic-slider controlling the master volume.
