You need to blacklist the snd-hda-intel kernel module from being
loaded automatically by appending it to /etc/hotplug/blacklist .

From a clean boot, make sure the universe repository is enabled, then:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential gcc-3.4 linux-headers-$(uname -r) module-assistant
$ wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/a/alsa-driver/alsa-source_1.0.10-3_all.deb && sudo dpkg -i alsa-source_1.0.10-3_all.deb ; sudo apt-get -f install
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure alsa-source

Choose "Yes" for both Plug n' play support and debugging symbols, then
deselect "all" cards and select only "hda-intel". Then:

$ sudo module-assistant a-i alsa-source

At this point you'll need to remove snd-hda-intel from
/etc/hotplug/blacklist , and reboot.
