You can better use slots option for snd module instead of specifying
index in each driver for 2.6.25 or later kernels. That is,

options snd slots=snd-intel8x0,snd-hda-intel

will assign the specified drivers in the first two slots. And this
means also that these two slots are reserved. The other drivers,
e.g. a hotplugged usb-audio, won't be assigned in these slots even
usb-audio is loaded before intel8x0.

See ALSA-Configuration.txt for details.
