I've actually noticed those errors now on my oldest sample: the 29022
device. I thought on that device a long time that the tda9887 was
hardwired and thus not controllable on the I2C bus. (That was my
thought years ago when I first started playing with this driver, but
from what I know now that statement doesn't really make sense. Probably
worth a closer look.)

I think I'm going to have to scratch-install Debian Stable back on that
laptop and try again - though I am still at a loss for how the distro
could have any influence on this. But there are no other explanations I
can come up with, especially given that this same laptop had no trouble
operating 29xxx devices in the past.
