Dear Takashi,

Thank you for your reply.

Thank you for your patch.
I have applied your patch and recompiled the snd-hda-intel kernel
module. A reload of the newly compiled driver stiil gives me the "no
codec found!" output in dmesg.

After inserting some snd_printk() into the hda_intel.c, it seems that
this "azx_readw()" macro in azx_reset() function returns a "0" to
chip->codec_mask on our not-working device. It is returns a "1" on the
other working device though.

-- snip --
 751         /* detect codecs */
 752         if (!chip->codec_mask) {
 753                 chip->codec_mask = azx_readw(chip, STATESTS);
 754                 snd_printk("codec_mask = 0x%x\n", chip->codec_mask);

For I am not an expert in sound driver development, the above are
provided for reference. But would this be some kind of hint?
