How to set default pcm device?

After boot, my /dev/sndstat looks like this:
pcm0: <ATI R6xx (HDMI)> (play)
pcm1: <Realtek ALC280 (Analog 2.0+HP/2.0)> (play/rec) default
pcm2: <Realtek ALC280 (Rear Analog)> (play/rec)
pcm3: <USB audio> (play)
No devices installed from userspace.
However, I would like the USB audio device, pcm3, to be the default
sound unit. How do I set this persistently across reboots?
The traditional solution was to set hw.snd.default_unit=3 in
/boot/loader.conf. That worked for FreeBSD 10.x, but with 11.x the
USB devices are attached very late and the boot loader setting
(which I still have) is effectively ignored. Loading the uaudio
module early with snd_uaudio_load=YES doesn't change this. Setting
hw.snd.default_unit in /etc/sysctl.conf is unlikely to work either;
certainly it's a race.
Do I need to define a devd(8) action for when uaudio attaches or
is there a better way?
