I had to add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf that ALSA was
working:

----- quote -----
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
----- end -------

The device should be different of course, i think snd-op13sa2.
Could be worth a try. With these quoted lines added added to
modprobe.conf my sound works perfectly.
