I have made some changes to how our sound detection works. Now, it wont 
just blindly do a kldload snd_driver anymore, since that was causing a 
lot of lockups. However, the drawback is that some systems will get an 
error at bootup that it couldn't identify the card. If you see this 
message, please generate the diagnostic sheet and send it in for me to 
fixup your cards support :)
