Bug #882693 reported by Marc Legris on 2011-10-27

Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: Automute broken if
  - There are just "Line out" and "Internal Speaker"
  - Using a realtek codec with the auto parser
Fix: Using the attached patch, written by myself
Testcase: Should be obvious - see if automute works with the Optiplex XE machine.

When plugging a headset into the rear audio out port, the internal speakers will not be mutes. Both the headset and the internal speakers will both output sound.

I believe this bug was fixed upstream when I refactored Realtek's automute, but for 3.0 I just had a look at the code, and I think I've found the problem.

Please install this dkms package and reboot, and report back whether it resolved your problem. Thanks!

Installed David's dkms package (had to install dkms as well) and after rebooting the issue was resolved.

Removing blocks-hwcert, as this is not a blocker

This is fixed in Linux 3.2. IIRC, Anthony thinks it is not worth SRUing.
