 Hmm - there could be some interaction with the audio
 buffer and its low/high water marks. The writing should adapt
 to the audio speed instead of using a fixed blocksize and
 timer interval. I don't have a good idea how to do that
 without changing the code structure.
 Does it help to use larger blocks, eg "digital 10"
 or "digital 20"? (At about 30 a limitation of the
 VM system is hit - raw SCSI commands cannot exceed
 MAXPHYS=64k bytes.)
 Does it have a positive effect for you to remove
 the sched_yield() call in sig_timer(). I don't think
 that makes much sense.

 Yes, but be should do some finetuning before.
