snd_hda_intel should probably be rearchitected to be similar to the way
that snd-aoa works... e.g. multiple modules for codecs, etc.

But, that's a lot of effort, and I don't personally have the hardware to
test (only one box of mine has HDA audio that I know of, and I use a
better card there), or I would start working on making that happen.
