It's the accursed HDA! Great audio chipset, but FreeBSD gives you way too many
device.hints knobs. /dev/dsp defaults to /dev/dsp0.0, but there is a sysctl
knob that supposedly changes this, and you can also do some virtual rewiring
with device.hints. Consult the snd_hda manpage
Also make sure you're running -STABLE, as a lot of HDA changes got committed
