Interesting. So you have a machine with 4.0 built-in speaker instead
of 2.1? Then we need to add a device-specific flag for it. Currently
the driver assumes 2.1 system blindly because majority of machines
have that.

FWIW, the codec parser code has been totally rewritten for 3.9, so any
patch to 3.8 won't be applied to 3.9 (and vice versa)...

Could you give alsa-info.sh output on 3.8 kernel? Then I'll try to
cook it for 3.9 (and maybe backport to 3.8).
