Mark is right, you must edit /etc/modutils/alsa (make sure you don't
have backup files from your editor such as alsa~ lying around,
everything in that dir is used...). Then run update-modules to transport
the changes into modules.conf.
Also: /etc/modprobe.d/sound should be a copy of (or symlink to)
/etc/modutils/alsa(-base). This makes the correct information show up in
/sys/module/snd_usb_audio/parameters/*. I found this important if you
want to control the order of your usb devices.
