Description: This started originally as task  FS#65361 . It was supposedly fixed by linux-5.5.1.arch2-1-x86_64, unfortunately not for me, because pulseaudio does not work. It reports NO real output devices whatsoever, only a 'fake output device'. I've been unable to produce any sound via pulseaudio on any 5.5 series kernels. No issues with 5.4 series kernels or earlier.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

same issue. downgrade kernel to 5.4.8 fixed it.

The same issue here and also suspension stopped working after the upgrade, on a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (Gen 7).

Downgrading to a 5.4.x Kernel solved the issue.

I guess downgrading is not needed. Adding snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 still works on my PC. This is discussed already before. (in #64720)

Adding snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 worked for me, too. Dell Vostro 5590 (i5)

Adding snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 solves the sound problem. However suspension is still broken.
