    For drivers built into the kernel that gets messy. The command line is
    only so long. Sounds messy for modules too. Further (responding to
    your other e-mail), few probably care about having the mixer containing
    default, not custom, values for 10 seconds between driver init and aumix
    execution from initscripts...

    It sounds smarter to delay mixer initialization, or mute all mixer
    channels at init. That effectively initializes the mixer channels to
    the custom values you desire, without having to add special case module
    gunk for the subset of people who need correct mixer values Right
    Now(tm).
