[alsa-devel] HDA - Add more support for Dell systems.

The only difference between the Dell-XPS.patch I sent you, and the
Dell.patch I sent to the list was that I added more Dell systems to the
STAC922x portion of the driver (you're using the STAC9200).  Since both
patches were for the same driver, it was just easier this way.  And the
922x portion was tested on #alsa irc.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits easy.
And when I thinks, I goes to sleep.
