Actually, it's already disabled (I just checked). It was disabled from
the last time I had this problem. However, since the upgrade from 4.8
to 4.9, FreeBSD seems to recognize it anyway. I haven't changed any of
the BIOS settings.

The actual setting is something like:
AC97 onboard sound controller: [Disabled]
