Check /etc/modprobe.conf, edit it and make sure there are no extra
spaces or stuff at the end of the "options" lines (and any other line
just in case). Once you are done do (as root) "/sbin/depmod -a" and try
restarting alsa again...

_something_ is messing up modprobe.conf but I don't know what it is.
