It gets loaded by default at boot because the Intel 8x0 driver could
not be found.

 kernel: i810: SiS 7012 found at IO 0x9000 and 0x9400, 
        MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ 193
 kernel: i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
 kernel: i810_audio: Defaulting to base 2 channel mode.
 kernel: i810_audio: Resetting connection 0
 kernel: ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: ADS112 (Unknown)
 kernel: i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 supports AMAP, total channels = 6
