I have a MSI RS480M2-IL mainboard (aka MS-7093). According to the specs,
it has a Realtek ALC658 audio codec (and "Compliance with AC97 v2.3
Spec." as the specs tell). Is there a audio driver for this somewhere?

I'm running FreeBSD 5.4-stable (amd64):
root at kg-quiet# uname -a

I have tried 'kldload snd_driver', but 'cat /dev/sndstat' still shows:
root at kg-quiet# cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:

Here is the output of 'pciconf -lv' for the audio device:
none2 at pci0:20:5:        class=0x040100 card=0x00801462 chip=0x43701002

    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio

and, for good measure, the output of 'lspci -v':
