Subject[PATCH] opl3 fails to release_region()
This is patch is need in 2.4.19 so opl3 will not fail
freeing resources when compiled as module.

When opl3 is compiled as module, and we don't
insert it with the io=0xXXX parameter, the actual
code will left the /proc/ioports resource allocated at rmmod
as he expects always the io parameter. The io parameter
isn't needed with adlib_card.c, who calls opl3_detect
and doesn't set the opl3.c:io variable that
is needed to release_region().

This patch adds io = ioaddr in opl3_init(ioaddr, ....).
It doesn't change the behaviour of the opl3 code when inserting it
as module with the io parameter or when it's built-in in the kernel
(in these cases, io contains the address, which is passed to ioaddr,
so we don't change the io value)

Also it moves the "static int io = -a" declaration at the top of the file
so it can be used in opl3_init.

Note that this still has a bug: if you insert opl3.o as module
without the io parameter (as happens when you modprobe adlib_card)
if you rmmod adlib_card without removing opl3, insmod adlib_card will fail
until you rmmod opl3 load it again. But now, at least you don't have to reboot
to free the /proc/ioports value ;)

(Side note: This is my first i dedicate it at the
project guys at #kernelnewbies, who helped me to understand the problem,
and they make me to learn a lot of new things every day ;)

So many comments for a patch so small...
