It finally works after I added next lines to /etc/rc.local


modprobe snd-aoa-i2sbus
modprobe snd-aoa-soundbus
modprobe snd-aoa-fabric-layout
modprobe snd-aoa


My /etc/modprobe.conf:


blacklist snd_powermac
blacklist snd-powermac
blacklist bcm43xx

alias eth0 sungem
alias wlan0 bcm43xx-mac80211

alias snd-card-0 snd-aoa
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-aoa index=0
remove snd-aoa { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-aoa


With best regards!
