    You mean the undocumented, 100% ioctl one? With one ioctl to write
    interleaved sound, one for non-interleaved sound, in addition to
    setting interleaved or not in the configuration? I should check one
    day which one wins.

    Or the "library"? Don't get me started on this one.

    I take your word about the fact that the kernel side is better. The
    userland side, not so much.
