since it is generally used on PNP cards must add id to sb_isapnp.c, but still
won't really work since its SoundBlaster emulation is play only and it uses
the second irq that PNP gives not the first, and sb_isapnp.c always trys to
use the first one. Windows Sound System would be better but there is currently
no PNP stuff for it.
