I did it for OSS emulation but it can be used for anything. Hmm... I'm
still in the process of pushing out patches, so please wait just a bit.

Sound device just sets nonseekable. The direct lseek bit is for API
completeness as there are chardevs which have special semantics
regarding lseek.

Thanks.
