It depends on each machine model it seems. The modem sound can be analog
& wired on a mixer input of the sound chip, or it can be all digital
on an i2s channel (I _think_, I'm not too sure about this one). For
the USB softmodem, I think you can ask them modem to give you sound
on the data line when dialing and the driver could try to route
that to the sound driver, but it's a lot of work
