Because there isn't any documentation.

In fact, installing alsa-base solved the problem. But I've noticed
that the snd_aoa module isn't loaded. Shouldn't ALSA do that

I'm asking because, though the sound is now working, I get a hissing
with 24000 Hz files in VLC, mpg123 and mpg321 at least (I had this
problem in the past too, but not with audacity, though -- I haven't
tried audacity with the new kernel yet), and perhaps snd_aoa solves
the problem. Related bug: 381843.
