Some general things:
 1. Make sure you're compliing from the stable-queue branch in git. It's
got ~170 odd patches on top of 0.9.21 that will likely become 0.9.22 in
the not too distant future.

 2. I'd recommend module-hal-detect rather than module-detect. This is
deprecated in favour of udev, but it's still better for your old kernel.

 3. I'd recommend updating your kernel to the latest one. You'll find a
lot of alsa driver updates and other fixes that could ultimate affect
