I compiled a kernel with your recent changes - and since then I can
crash my sytem by just accessing /dev/audio :-( Unfortunatly there seems
also a problem with wddump - it just gets an error message too - so I
can't provide a crashdump.

My system is a Toshiba Tecra 500 CDT laptop, sb gets recognised like:

sb0 at isa0 port 0x220-0x237 irq 5 drq 1 drq16 1: dsp v3.02

and worked before those changes. I get a crash with a simple

cat > /dev/audio

also with xanim.
