    I changed that code yesterday with a little bit more comment.

    Wei, Peer, could you regenerate the patch based on the latest sound
    git tree?

    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound-2.6.git

    or use the snapshot tarball from

    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/tiwai/snapshot/

    This already contains the fix for the 4th slot probe on Nvidia
    chipset.


    thanks,

    Takashi
