Yes, alsa-utils is installed.

If it is of any help, here is the content of /etc/udev/alsa-utils.rules:
KERNEL=="controlC[0-7]", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/lib/udev/alsa-utils"

I have searched for the text via82xx in /etc, and the only blacklist
related I found was

# blacklist snd-via82xx-modem

in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base-blacklist.

I have appended snd-via82xx to /etc/modules and after reboot I have
sound working again. Thanks for the tip!

While I still consider the fact that the snd-via82xx module fails to
load automatically at boot a regression, I don't really know what to do
about this bug. Should it be closed, further investigated, redirected
somewhere (udev or the package generating /etc/modules (the kernel?),
requesting that snd-via82xx gets appended to /etc/modules perhaps?) or
what? Feel free to do what you want!

Happy hacking,
