 A kernel compiled with
 nodevice snd_hda
 boots indeed fine.
 I also tried the hdac patch from
 to get support for the VIA VT1708S High Definition Audio Codec on my board,
 still no joy (i.e. booting a kernel compiled with 228726 freezes as well)
 Seems like FreeBSD 9.0-REL will be unusable for VIA mainboard owners.
