When no quirk is set, the automatic mode is used as default.
And, it's possible that the automatic mode has been fixed in the
upstream.  That's why I asked to test with the latest one.
We should avoid any device-specific quirk as much as possible, but
rather fix the automatic parser.

Yes.  The alsa-driver-snapshot tarball is created from GIT tree.

Did you take a look at INSTALL file in alsa-driver?
You can try sound git tree instead of that tarball, too, if you are
building your kernel from a GIT tree by yourself.
