Yaii! My beep will be back in the next kernel release :)

This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    ALSA: hda - Add PC-beep whitelist for an Intel board

to the 2.6.35-stable tree which can be found at:
    http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/stable-queue.git;a=summary

The filename of the patch is:
    ../tmp/alsa-hda-add-pc-beep-whitelist-for-an-intel-board.patch
and it can be found in the queue-2.6.35 subdirectory.

If you, or anyone else, feels it should not be added to the stable tree,
please let <stable@kernel.org> know about it.

commit e096c8e6d5ed965f346d94befbbec2275dde3621 upstream.

An Intel board needs a white-list entry to enable PC-beep.
Otherwise the driver misdetects (due to bogus BIOS info) and ignores
the PC-beep on 2.6.35.
