Did you spell the name incorrectly? I see lots of hits for "Cirrus" driver with Dell and the download page for the windows driver. I don't see anything for Linux. Do you have a link to what you downloaded you can post?
The name of the Driver is Cirrus Logic High-Definition Audio Driver,which i downloaded it in windows 7 32bits.The sound quality is awesome with this driver,gives more bass and can increase the volume with no distortion on windows.but in ubuntu,if i go beyond the given option in sound setting,it distort.its like hearing in a tin can.so,if you guys can suggest me to download any apps or work around in terminal,would be very helpful.
