The snd-ctxfi driver was written by Creative some time ago; there
haven't been any updates since then.  This driver does not handle the
Xtreme Audio PCIe.

This chip is also said to be compatible with the HD Audio specification.
Therefore, the snd-hda-intel driver tries to handle it.

However, the chip doesn't seem to be initialized correctly, or isn't
really HDA compatible.  Nobody except Creative knows.
