Comment(by dsd):

 Removing that line does indeed work around the problem. But, like you, I'd
 prefer to fix this properly.

 I'm not having much luck here though. In both the working and failure
 case, at the point of the audio driver probe routine, the PCI_COMMAND byte
 reads 0x41. The driver does try to enable bus mastering by writing 0x45,
 however upon reading immediately after, the value is still 0x41 in both
 the success and failure case.

 I used "lspci -vvvxxx" to dump the configuration space between working and
 failure cases after booting into Linux, there is no difference in the

 Also, based on your diagnosis I was expecting to be able to reproduce the
 failure in unsecure mode with:
 select /audio
 unmap-regs boot

 However this booted up with working audio.

 Any further ideas? Could something else be at play?
