[alsa-devel] [PATCH] hda-intel: Add position_fix quirk for ASUS M2V-MX SE.

With PulseAudio and an application accessing an input device like `gnome-volume-manager` both have high CPU load as reported in [1].

Loading `snd-hda-intel` with `position_fix=1` fixes this issue. Therefore add a quirk for ASUS M2V-MX SE.

The only downside is, when now exiting for example MPlayer when it is playing an audio file a high pitched sound is outputted by the speaker.
