My sound just died

I just installed an official kernel security update vie Ubuntu update feature, rebooted and when my system was back up I had no sound. Nice.

This may have been due to the fact that I have manually installed newer Alsa to get the sound working. Well, I recompiled the drivers and rebooted. Now I have sound again. I know it isn't easy to support hardware, especially when it's new or you have to reverse-engineer it. And I certainly don't now what is the case with my sound drivers. Still, it would be nice if the end user didn't have to recompile drivers, ever.
