Basically to get sound working on the Dell Precision 380, you need to
follow the directions at http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/

Each time a kernel update occurs you have to rebuild the ALSA for it
so that the drivers are included. I ran out of time trying to build a
dkms kernel for it as this would be perfect in having it rebuild each
time the kernel reboots.
