In accordance with

~ $ find /sys -name snd_hdsp

(and digging in the paths with udevadm info) I have tried these two rules:

ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="snd_hdsp", SUBSYSTEM="drivers" RUN+="/usr/sbin/alsactl restore"
ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="snd_hdsp", SUBSYSTEM="module" RUN+="/usr/sbin/alsactl restore"

But they didn't help. It seems "add" is triggered earlier rather a card is initialized. Can not understand which other events can be used here.
