    Good points.

    I don't quite see how this would make user space any less

    # insmod audio_driver volume=`retrieve_volume`


    # insmod audio_driver
    # aumix -L >/dev/null

    only that the latter can do a lot more, so you may want it even
    if the module lets you set the volume. And the module solution
    doesn't help with monolithic kernels. (And I doubt you'd want
    this to be a kernel command line parameter. Talk about fancy.)

    echo 'aumix -L >/dev/null' >>/etc/rc.d/rc.local

    Wow, that was hard :-) (Okay, things get a tad more complex if
    you have more than one mixer.)
