I don't get this last part.

My ALSA is built as modules, including the core (I'm guessing that means
snd.ko, right?).  I don't do anything particular to load them, they're
not listed in /etc/conf.d/modules.  Yet the mixer save and restore via
alsasound works.

Could it be that alsasound itself loads the modules on demand, and the
warning above is misleading?
