Subject[PATCH] Multiple soundcard support in register_sound_special()
Date
I am feeling "lucky" and so I am going to post this patch again
:-). This patch is needed to allow ALSA to provide OSS compatibility
for multiple sound cards, because ALSA uses the
register_sound_special() function exclusively to create OSS device
nodes. With the patch (and devfs), my /dev/sound directory looks like
this:

$ ls -als /dev/sound

0 drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 Jan 1 1970 .
0 drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 Jan 1 1970 ..

0 crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 14, 16 Jan 1 1970 mixer1
0 crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 14, 1 Jan 1 1970 sequencer
0 crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 14, 8 Jan 1 1970 sequencer2

Without it, my /dev/sound directory looks like this:

$ ls -als /dev/sound

0 crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 14, 1 Jan 1 1970 sequencer
0 crw-r--r-- 1 root root 14, 8 Jan 1 1970 sequencer2
0 crw------- 1 root root 14, 16 Jan 1 1970 unknown

and the following errors are written into my kernel log:

Jan 6 18:10:27 twopit kernel: devfs: devfs_register(unknown): could not append to parent, err: -17
Jan 6 18:10:27 twopit kernel: devfs: devfs_register(unknown): could not append to parent, err: -17

These errors are presumably caused by devices "mixer1", "dsp1" and
"audio1" all fighting over the "unknown" slot. Could someone please
apply the patch? Any feedback on any cleanups it might need would
also be appreciated. Note that the uniqueness of the sequencer and
sequencer2 devices is preserved.

Cheers,
Chris
