Loading the OSS modules on the XO

   I am porting a application to the XO. It uses the OSS sound Api's to
render sound. I found that the oss modules are not loaded on the xo by
default. I was able to load the oss modules by running modprobe snd-pcm-oss
which created the /dev/dsp and other device files required by the oss
modules and was able to run my application on the XO. But the problem is
every time I reboot the XO I will have to run the commands and load the oss

   Is there any way I can tell the XO to always load the oss modules? Even
if I have a script to run the commands on launching the application these
commands would require super user privileges which I wont have when I launch
the application from the activity bar. Any Ideas?
