Thanks for the bug report. I'm adding some people involved in the commit
you mention is causing audio regressions. The best plan is to probably
revert the commit from the 4.18 linux stable tree. Or there may be
another patch missing that would be useful to make this backported patch
work. Hopefully Hans or Andy knows.
