Well, why should anyone here guess for you? You give NO details about loaded 
modules before/after alsaconf or anything else!

apt-cache show discover discover1

Ususally, getting rid of both of them fixes numerous problems: discover just 
sucks and you ususally do not need it. WHY would you want to do the same damn 
detection on every boot?
Hotplug is ususally enough because you also use it at runtime and it does most 
of the things that discover does, too, only more integrated with the system.
