Bug Description

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th edition laptop running Ubuntu 19.10 desktop. I recently applied a software update that contained a new kernel, 5.3.0-42, and upon restarting, the internal audio interface was not found; internal speakers and the headphone output were unusable.

Upon rebooting with the previous kernel, 5.3.0-40, the problem went away again. Subsequent testing confirms this is repeatable.

Some relevant lines from `dmesg` follow.

On kernel 5.3.0-40 (working):

I've attached `lspci -vnvn` and `dmesg` output for both the -40 and -42 kernels.
