Subjectsound driver feature/bug ?
Hi, Hannu

I made a few tests with the sound driver
(my card is SB16 ASP). Some of them were
crazy enough to produce strange results.

1. Writing 1 byte to /dev/dsp forced the driver
to play 4K bytes. Of cource the rest 4095
bytes were noise. I realised that smallest
piece of samples/bytes the driver can play is

2. Writing 4097 bytes made the driver play
two buffers. Again the rest 4095 bytes
from the second buffer were garbage.

I realise that is very hard to have all cases
in mind, but using SB under Linux for something
different than playback/record will produce
strange(incorrect) results.
