hi folks.  the BSD extension to the sun extension was erroneously
given a `u_long' tag, which means that when trying to maintain
32 <-> 64 bit compatibility (eg, compat_sparc32 for a 64-bit
ultrasparc port), this means all audio ioctls need to be converted.
pain.  as the alpha did not support any audio devices in 1.3, and
only recently started supporting the wss in -current, i am changing
the type of to a u_int (it was only ever set from
an int in the kernel anyway!).

this means that any old audio tools will *not* work with a new
kernel, and you must rebuild these.  this includes the in tree 
audioctl and all the audio players/recorders that are provided in
pkgsrc also..

sorry for any inconvience...
