I don't think that can have any effect. :-) The setting


in /boot/loader.conf would be the correct choice. Anyway, if
you included

	device          sound
	device          snd_hda

in your kernel configuration file, the driver (a) should be
compiled in and (b) loaded at startup. Of course, it won't
show up in kldstat then, but

	% cat /dev/sndstat

should indicate the running driver.
