No. If I load snd_via8233 via loader.conf, it will not set all
volumes to 75:75 (maybe it bails out at ogain which it can't
find), so speaker is left at 0:0 wich results in this terrible

Loading snd_via8233 afterwards by hand works, though.

The only thing I then get in /var/log/messages is:

pcm0: <VIA VT8237> port 0xd000-0xd0ff irq 22 at device 17.5 on pci0
pcm0: <Unknown AC97 Codec (id = 0x434d4983)>

(this is ASRock K7UPGRADE-880/A/ASR-Board)

Patches eg to snd_via8233 are welcome :-)
