SubjectRe: [2.6 patch] schedule obsolete OSS drivers for removal

Hello Adrian.

I'm the maintainer of the OSS AD1816 sound driver. I'm aware of two
problems of the ALSA AD1816 driver, that do not show up with the OSS
driver:
- According to my own experience and user reports audio is choppy with
some VoIP Softphones like gnophone at least when used with the ALSA OSS
emulation layer, whereas the OSS driver is crystal clear.
- Users reported, that on some HP Kayak systems the on-board AD1816A
was not properly detected by the ALSA driver or was detected, but
there was no audio output. I'm not sure if the problem is still present in
the current ALSA driver, as I do not own such a system.

Maybe the OSS driver should stay in the kernel, until those problems are
fixed in the ALSA driver.

Regards
Thorsten
