    I get similar messages with my Gravis Ultrasound, but intermittently. I
    have only been able to get them to happen while playing DOOM; normal
    /dev/audio use doesn't seem to trigger it, although something possibly
    related causes very infrequent and intermittent failures of programs
    that use /dev/audio. However, in those cases the "DMA (output) timed
    out" message doesn't appear; the program just says it failed to open
    /dev/audio that time.

    I know there aren't any IRQ or DRQ conflicts on my system, and I have a
    busmastering SCSI controller that uses DMA and doesn't exhibit problems
    of this sort. I also believe there was a time when the sound driver
    didn't exhibit this problem, but sadly I can't remember exactly when I
    saw the problem start.
