sndstat verbosity

The Handbook page on setting up sound says to find out which driver bound
to the system after doing a "kldload snd_driver" to run"cat /dev/sndstat".
In my versions of 8/9-STABLE, there is no way to determine what that driver
is from sndstat without increasing the verbosity of "hw.snd.verbose".  IMO,
either a bug should be filed against docs to include a mention of
increasing the verbosity, or sndstat should list the bound module in it's
default output.  Does anyone have feedback on this and if the bug should be
a doc or sndstat related one?
