The speaker is working on my dual 800/G4 from the kernel in your tree of
10pm Thurs. night.  Thanks!  I've not tried to plug anything into the
jack yet though.

Also, it seems as though the mixer isn't working quite right.  The
actual  volume (using aumix or xmixer) doesn't seem to correspond to the
level indicated on the mixer GUI.  If I set the volume to its lowest
setting, the actual volume could be cranked.  As I increment the volume
slider, the volume seems to randomly get louder and softer all the way
up to the slider's maximum.
