    Might as well fake the normal aliases in soundcore if loaded rather than
    pollute chardev with it but otherwise I think we agree.

    Do we need soundcore at all at that point ? It seems phase 3 is "move any
    needed logic to ALSA oss emulation and kill it off"

    I think we need to for a year or so - and its trivial to do so.

    In the mean time if you are grabbing just some minors sound_core.c:chains
    also needs keeping in sync with direct character range grabs because your
    CUSE based device might grab some minors before sound_core, and then it
    appears tears will result ?
