Bug description:
  [WORKAROUND] Run the following command:

  echo "options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1" | sudo tee -a

  Workaround doesn't work anymore for me at least. I assume it only has a small possibility of working due to a firmware bug.

  No sound, no jacks; It is detected by Linux however.
