this uses a totally different sound archtecture for which the driver is not made for, that's why it's not supported by this driver, i have corrected the descritpion to avoid more confiusion

at least in my systems it did, of couse check always your bootloader settings (things like hpet problems may let the driver to crash) and use this kext inside clover's kext folder, and of course try the new updated version 2.0 which supports more features
