Enabling Intel 82801H audio card in GNU/Linux

After many frustrating months i can now hear sounds from my MacBook. The sound card is an 82801H Intel card, lspci command says:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

To enable the sound card you need at least alsa 1.0.15 version, now your distribution should use 1.0.16. Than the magic step is to insert into /etc/modprobe.d/options :
options snd_hda_intel model=mbp3

That's all folks! :)
