SubjectRecent kernels sound crash solution found?
         Hello folks, seems that i found the potential bug which
led to the infinite trace i`ve described before.

1. My host have 24M of RAM and on kernels 2.4.x;x>7 it started
to have n-order alloc failures.
2. In very rare circumsistances under 2.4.8-ac12 i have
1-order alloc failures.
3. sound_alloc_dmap::dmabuf.c comments states it will loop
until the buffer is alloced
4. sound_alloc_dmap::dmabuf.c comments states it wont accept buffer
lesser than 8k in size.

3 + 4 => it loops forever when 1-order alloc fails
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 => my host crashes

* comment to point 2: very rare circumcistances includes
that some time should pass to fragment memory

cheers, Sam
