Laptop Support From Where?

I would like to say that I am completely disgusted with the support some vendors provide for their hardware. I have been trying to get sound working under Linux now for my BenQ S52-v54 for a long time now, it has now come to the point that I am trying to write a patch myself, yey for kernel hacking.

This is a documented bug in ALSA for my laptop as one of the notes said this is a CX20551 chipset from Conexant I event went to the trouble of filing for support:

The chipset on this laptop does not work under the Linux Alsa architecture and is a current bug request: https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=1134

To develop a compatible driver for this chipset I wish to confirm that it is a CX20551. An exact number would be optimal.

Any support documentation and such as that available for the CX20468, http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ftp/manuals/conexant/100965aSmartAMC-AudioModemCodec.pdf,
would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Quite civil I thought I was just asking for a confirmation and possibly some documentation on the chipset that I own in my laptop. Not too demanding I just want to know about something I own. I filed it as a Linux support issue because it was relating to Linux but the question is not necessarily about supporting Linux. I’m not asking for them to provide drivers etc. I received the following reply:
