It's a cheap PCI sound card :)
In the alsa documentation  it says that you should configure it like this:
$ ./configure --with-cards=cmipci --with-sequencer=yes
I just would like to get it working without having to recompile alsa.
If not, I'd have to read more documentation and try to get it working.
