Laptop has Pentium Dual Core and Intel HD Audio
Kernel is compiled for Processor family Core2.
In-kernel alsa drivers are 1.0.14rc3 (cat /proc/asound/version) and 
compile ok.
In-kernel drivers do not work for this sound card.

Downloaded 1.0.14rc3 and applied patch_realtek.c
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-cards=hda-intel
"make" gives the following error:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
> /usr/src/linux- 
> /usr/src/linux- No such file or directory

If the kernel is compiled with Processor family = Pentium M, the 
external alsa drivers compile clean and the soundcard works.

So, Processor family = Core2 cannot be selected when using external
