ALSA: hda - Allow to pass position_fix=0 explicitly
Set the default value of position_fix -1, and allow user passing position_fix=0 explicitly to set the "auto" position-fix mode. Otherwise the auto mode may be switched to others like COMBO of VIACOMBO when the controller prefers it, thus user can't set the auto mode any longer. Also updated the documentation appropriately, too. Signed-off-by: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>
