Your specific card is not recognized. Follow Takashi's suggestion
until you find a subsystem setting that works for you. Tell us which
one, and then the next alsa version will automatically include support
for your card.
Although it has the ca0106 chip, the actual ins and outs on the card
vary and we have no way to tell the details without you helping with
the testing. What the subsystem option does, it force the driver to
think it is a different card type, with associated different ins and
outs. With trial and error should should find a good setting.
