  output volume is randomly changing level

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've confirmed that the volume control for the PC is changing of it's
  own volition.  The volume applet in the top pane (using Ubuntu Gnome
  15.10) and the volume sliders in alsamixer are changing every 10
  seconds to a random level.  The interval of the changes is not
  periodic (random time interval and output volume).  It does look like
  the fader goes to zero before choosing a new random volume level.

  I am running 5.1 surround, and the motherboard supports the feature.
  I had this problem while running while 15.04 with a single stereo
  (green jack, rear) output speaker system.  It seemed to be repaired in
  an update, because the issue disappeared after a  while.  I removed
  the USB peripherals that I usually have attached which control volume
  (eg keyboard) I even went as far as to disable bluetooth in case that
  was causing issues.
