Ticket #9248 (closed defect: fixed)
no sanitization of sound settings

Activities can modify sound mixer levels, and these are saved on shutdown because /etc/init.d/halt calls salsa.
We have seen a number of cases where laptops have broken sound because PCM is muted and at 0 volume.
In Paraguay we will work around this by copying the stock asound state to a non-standard filename and hacking olpc-configure to restore from that special file during boot (if an activity screws up sound, then a reboot will fix it).
