I see. I am afraid there is not much more I can do then - I am a 
biologist and writing driver code is far beyond my IT skills.
In the meantime, I was able to run reconfig in runlevel 3, but assigning 
  neither 0x0111103e nor 0x011111f0 to 0x17 produced any changes in 
alsamixer output (which is expected in the light of what you wrote about 
modifying the driver).
When it comes to volume control issue, under windows it is possible to 
control center, lfe and side channels separately.
