Are you sure the provided alsa/snd-hda-intel module doesn't work with 
your hardware ?
I had to specify the model name in the /etc/modprobe.conf (model=imac24

Maybe adding a link/note on the wiki about all the parameters that this 
module accepts is worth writing : all the paramaters are in the file 
(package kernel-doc)
