Try enabling msi via hint.pcm.%d.msi=3D"1" . It is disabled by default
due to too many broken msi.

There is a poor man polling mode which can be enabled through sysctl
dev.pcm.%d.polling=3D1, but I won't recommend this for typical usage
(unless to debug this kind of weird issues).

This regression probably originated from somewhere else since you said
it was working fine under RELENG_6.
