Couldn't the machine type be detected?

Developers aren't even aware of this. From this mailing-list:

If you have udev running and a kernel >= 2.6.18-rc? then udev should
load your snd_aoa flavour at G4 PB's. Note: do not mention any snd-*
module in /etc/modules and no user-snd-blacklists in
/etc/modprobe.d/. linux-sound-base has to be configured for alsa.

So, I've put snd-powermac back to the /etc/modules file and sound is
working again by default.
