Ok, alsaconf should have created /etc/modprobe.d/sound. Please cat
the file and send the output.

Else it is a good thing to blacklist snd_aoa:

# echo "blacklist snd_aoa_soundbus" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local

For a last check please send the output of:

$ cat /etc/modules


  The path to source is always uphill!
