    esssolo1 does its own FM, so the code in question is attempting to let
    the driver support either external opl3 driver, or internal,
    more-functional FM.

    In solo1_probe, an FM interface is registered.

    So, IMHO there is a bug somewhere... Why register an FM interface in
    probe, and then check_region for another FM driver in _open? Is this
    intentional or really a bug?
