I worked on something like that some time ago, but had to use a 
userspace-deamon to redirect the sound to /dev/dsp. Actually, I know, that 
this could easyly be done with devfs. Maybe I restart my work.

It was though as a /dev/vdsp0..n. Easy to use, just compile into the kernel, 
or load as a module, and then symlink /dev/dsp to vdspx instead of dspx.
