Hm, interesting.  So, in your case, the position-buffer exists and
reports some valid values, but the values are sloppy actually.
It's hard to detect in the driver, unfortunately.  The relevant commit
(and its original fix) were the attempts to detect better, but it
seems that it fails...

FWIW, the patch below is what I'm committing to the tree.

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: hda - Add position_fix quirk for Dell Inspiron 1010

The previous fix for the position-buffer check gives yet another
regression on a Dell laptop.  The safest fix right now is to add a
static quirk for this device (and better to apply it for stable
kernels too).
