Things that won't land for Lucid Alpha 1:
Steady progress on Analog Devices HDA suspend/resume additions/fixes in pursuit of powerdown objectives;
Fix for PulseAudio bailing on HDA softmodems.
On the other hand, they will land sometime soonish. In fact, the latter fix is available for testing in Karmic from the ubuntu-audio-dev PPA.
(As always, thanks for understanding that I have a limited amount of free time to do this stuff.)
