I'm using the gus driver on a gusmax card. About a week ago (13 october???)
I rebuild to -current for the first time since about a month. So I guess,
my current system is from before your changes mentioned above. Nonetheless,
my current audio is broken. I only did a very minimal test; playing
an Alaw audio file (`the way it worked before') gave DMA-timeout error
messages and it hangs. From then on the audio device is `busy' also
after killing the audio-player...
