This is an old problem I am suffering since kernel-2.6.32 and that is
still unresolved even with 2.6.35 and alsa-utils-1.0.23:

If you follow the thread, it got stalled in:

In summary, I get the following:
# alsactl -f /etc/asound.state restore /dev/snd/controlC0 
Unknown hardware: "VIA8237" "Realtek ALC658D" "AC97a:414c4781" "0x147b"
Hardware is initialized using a guess method
# echo $?

As you can see, the exit code was solved, but I don't know why my
hardware is still shown as "Unknown" even if 
via82xx.c clearly has some lines for my device:
        SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x147b, 0x1415, "ABIT AV8", VIA_DXS_NO_VRA),

Thanks a lot for your help
