MPU-PC98II doesn't need those init codes. Apologize for not enough
explanations.
On-board sound and sound cards made by NEC need those init codes.
Perhaps, for backward compatibility, PC-9800's BIOS masks newer
features like WSS PCM, OPL3 FM synth and MPU-401 compatible IF.
After cold booting, they works as oldest sound card of NEC (PC-
9801-26). So I added some init codes to enable those features.
Most sound cards made by third parties (MPU-98, Sound blaster16
for PC9800...etc) don't need these init codes.

Init code for MPU-401 detects wheter NEC or not. If MPU-401 is
not NEC's, skip magical initialization. So I think it's beter,
your patch and adding option to mpu401.c

Thanks,
Osamu
