AUDIO_SETINFO requires to be set to -1 for items that you don't want
to change.  But AUDIO_GETBUFINFO returns(fills) 0 for untouched items.
Therefore you can't reuse audio_info_t you get from AUDIO_GETBUFINFO.
This has been the behavior since AUDIO_GETBUFINFO was first committed
in 2007.  (and it's undocumented...)

This patch (for libossaudio) fixes oss_dsp_init test.
# But the next test hangs (on sparc/qemu).  While a quick look,
# audiocs(4) seems to have another problem...)

By the way, I personally think this AUDIO_GETBUFINFO behavior (in the
kernel) is very confusing.  But I don't know whether this behavior was
intended or not.  (So I kept it during my audio development to avoid
any other confusions)
Should we change it now?
