Well after digging round the alsa-project.org site, I have to agree with you.
I believe the chip number is SiS 7012 but it could be the 7013. Since it's a
(clevo D470W) portable, there is no mobo book....
Here's what I did for I2C bus
I2C support --->
I2C Hardware Bus support --->

And for the alsa (in case it matters) stuff:
Multimedia devices --->
Video For Linux --->

PCI devices --->

yep, that I was, now I need a little more help to see that I get
the modules loaded correctly.

As mentioned above, I2C looks correct, according to your advice.
