Does this hack only work with the  X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro, or does 
it include support for all X-Fi based cards from Creative Labs?
I have got a Creative X-Fi Extreme Music, that gets infact recognized by 
my system but modprobing the patched source (modprobe snd-hda-intel, i 
hope this is the right one) does not work.
Here the lspci if this helps:
