The encoding you want is AUDIO_ENCODING_SLINEAR, i.e. signed
linear. The reason AUDIO_ENCODING_LINEAR was obsoleted was that
it didn't say anything about signed/unsigned (and in fact behaved
differently with 8 and 16 bits).
If you compile your kernel with COMPAT_12 it should still
accept AUDIO_ENCODING_LINEAR, though.
