Subject: Possible bug with Via VT8235 alsa sound driver

Please cc me on replies.

I'm running 2.5.40 with a via CLE motherboard with VT8235 southbridge
chip. The alsa driver for 8233 (sound/pci/via8233.c) seems to work fine,
meaning the sound output works as expected. I get lots of kernel messages
like below. A very simple program reproduces the problem:
#include <fcntl.h>

int main(int argc,char **argv)
int dsp;
close(dsp); // After this we get the kernel errors

The following repeats dozens and perhaps hundreds of times. I've worked out
from an objdump -d of vmlinux what the functions in the call stack are, and
their addresses.

Here are the configs related to sound:
All other sound related configs are unset.

I'm happy to run experiments of someone has any suggestions of what to try.
