I suppose preferred would depend on what your priorities are.  If you 
change the kernel source, it would be hard for you to change those 
defaults later, as opposed to making a startup script in 

If you want to set the kernel defaults, they appear to be in
mixer.c (find /usr/src/sys -name mixer.c -print) in snd_mixerdefaults.

The opinions above are solely those of a 12 year old hacker who has broken
into my account, and not those of my employer or any other organization.
