Surprisingly this did not fix the delay. After all the trouble I had
with MSI on the other system, I was sure it was related to the fact,
that 2.6.33 tried to use MSI.
2.6.33 with snd_hda_intel.enable_msi=0:
[ 1.155712] HDA Intel 0000:00:14.2: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level,
low) -> IRQ 16

[ 6.422628] #1: HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfe9e8000 irq 19
... if I had read these messages, instead of just copy&pasting them, I
could have noted, that the delay is from codec *0*, but MSI gets
enabled for codec *1*.
Info about the HDMI output:
01:05.2 Audio device [0403]: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X1200 Series
Audio Controller [1002:7919]

But that is a clear bug in the alsa code: After codec 0 (the
integrated audio from the SB600) does not responds, it disables the
MSI support for codec 1 (part of the intregrated graphic chipset).
(I don't know if the HDMI audio support is working or not, as I do not
have an HDMI display I could attach there.)

2.6.31 was working without the delay:

OK, just wanted to let you know, that there are MCP55 out there that
do work with MSI. :-)

Thanks, Torsten
