Hi Peter,
I just booted with the original flash rather than with coreboot. This
is to get the audio properly initialized by BIOS as Sefan mentions is
required. Although I don't have the ALSA line (still), I do have these
lines in /var/log/messages from the Linux azalia driver:

  mount used greatest stack depth: 5960 bytes left
  HDA Intel 0000:00:06.1: PCI->APIC IRQ transform: INT B -> IRQ 23
  input: PC Speaker as /class/input/input2
  eth1: no link during initialization.
  hda-intel: azx_get_response timeout, switching to polling mode: last cmd=0x000f0000
  hda-intel: Codec #0 probe error; disabling it...
  hda_intel: azx_get_response timeout, switching to single_cmd mode: last cmd=0x000f0000
  hda-intel: no codecs initialized
Also, my mainboard has no audio-out jack....
