Subject[095/146] ALSA: hda - Use LPIB for ATI/AMD chipsets as default
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

commit 50e3bbf9898840eead86f90a43b3625a2b2f4112 upstream.

ATI and AMD chipsets seem not providing the proper position-buffer
information, and it also doesn't provide FIFO register required by
VIACOMBO fix. It's better to use LPIB for these.
