Bug Description

I have a laptop ASUS N53Jq, it mounts Realtek ALC269VB as sound card.

Every time I install ubuntu I need to add: "options snd-hda-intel model=auto" in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to get it to work.

It is not so annoying, 'cause it is necessary only once per installation, but if it were not necessary it would be great!

The user reports that he needs to add model=auto for audio to
work properly. In fact, since node 0x15 is not even a pin node,
the existing fixup is definitely wrong. Relevant information can
be found in the buglink below.
