foo_load="YES" should go to /boot/loader.conf not to rc.conf. A good
advice would be to try to load the kld with kldload by hand and see
if it gets detected, but before loading the module please stop moused.
You can start it after loading the module and see if it's detected.
I have several loader files in /boot, but no loader.conf. There's a 
/boot/defaults/loader.conf. I suppose then that I should create a 
/boot/loader.conf with e.g. snd_pcm_load="YES" in it?
sound_load="YES" ...
Both you and Ezra mentioned this option, but I don't see it anywhere.
Where did you find it?  Are you sure it actually does something?
I used it because Gergo advised me, so I actually didn't find it 
anywhere. And I'd have to try to see if it actually does do something, 
but since both Gergo and Ezra advise it, I suppose it works.
