[hsflinux] still problems with newest driver and hda-intel onboard sound

the snd-via82xx-modem snd-intel8x0m and snd-atiixp-modem modules are not 
overwritten, they are overridden. Technically, the HSF driver disables 
these Linux native modem drivers conflicting with the HSF driver. This 
situation is perfectly normal and is not the source of the problem. You 
probably don't need these modules and they will be restored once you 
will uninstall the driver.

The HSF driver does replace the snd-hda-intel module in order to support 
Conexant HDA modems. This module is also used for HDA sound devices so 
it can have an impact on these, which is the case here.

Since you do not have a HDA modem, you do not need the replacement HDA 
modules so we will ask the HSF driver to not do the replacement. To do 
it, please use the following commands in a root shell:

hsfconfig --uninstall
touch /etc/.hsfmodem-hda-disable

and then re-install hsfmodem_7.68.00.04full_i386.deb. This "HDA disable" 
feature was added in
