the "make modules_install" I hope. "make modules" would just make the 
modules, not install them. You need to be very sure you're running the 
new;y compiled driver (ie, as said, unload any current driver, and 
reload after the make modules_install).

Whatever the result, sound or no, please also report the 
/proc/asound/AudioPCI/code97#0/ files

Quite frankly, I haven't a clue what _that_ is now about again all of a 
sudden, but also try "aplay -D hw:AudioPCI foo.wav".
