Hrm, it seems that this register was changed at some time.
In the old ICH6 datasheet, based on which I wrote the driver, shows
SSYNC is 0x34. I checked ICH7 and ICH9, ICH10 datasheet, and all show
Meanwhile SCH datasheet says it's 0x38, just like HD-audio spec 1.0.
So, I'm not sure whether we can change this. We should fix this once
when we confirm with a hardware that this is really a bogus value.
