According to your logs, 3.2.4 didn't touch device 5:0, while 3.2.5 does
disable ASPM. (Are there any other messages regarding 0000:05:00.0?)

It appears that this patch introduces new logic that forcibly disables
ASPM on pre-1.1 devices no matter what the BIOS says, although this
breaks your sound.

("Disable" can mean two things, tell the device to not do ASPM, or just
not tell the device anything.)
