[PATCH] autoload snd-powermac via modalias

Autoload snd-powermac on systems without i2s bus by creating a fake
modalias entry. udev/modprobe will use the 'modalias' file from
/sys/devices/pci*/*/*/*:mac-io/*:davbus/ to find a matching module.
Newer systems use snd-aoa, which provides the required modalias already.

Some systems with i2s bus, but without a 'layout-id' property, will not work
with this patch because an fake i2s alias will conflict with snd-aoa.
