Summary: Handbook tells to load snd_hda to get sound working,
which is not necessary in most cases
Severity: Affects Many People
https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/multimedia/#sound-setup let people
think they have to manually load snd_hda, or enable it in /boot/loader.conf, or
build a custom kernel, in order to get sound working.
I don't know about other platforms, but at least on amd64 (the most common
platform), this driver (the most commonly needed) is already part of the
GENERIC kernel, which makes the example pointless and confusing.
This section needs a refresh, mentioning that loading a sound driver or
building a custom kernel is only needed when using less common hardware. Taking
another driver than snd_hda as an example would be a good move too.
