Speakers muted by default on ThinkPad T61 (ICH8 HD audio)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: alsa-utils

I installed a new ThinkPad T61 using Gutsy Tribe 5, and found that the built-in speakers were muted by default. I could hear no sound until I opened the mixer and unmuted the 'Speakers' switch. Here's what it looks like after switching it on:

        control.3 {
                comment.access 'read write'
                comment.type BOOLEAN
                comment.count 2
                iface MIXER
                name 'Speaker Playback Switch'
                value.0 true
                value.1 true

This should be enabled by default.
