Hopefully not.  OSS4 on Linux is part of the problem, not part of the
solution.  Linux applications should not use /dev/dsp any more.  Those
that do may be handled by some kind of bridge to ALSA, which was what
this item refers to.  (The existing snd-pcm-oss and snd-mixer-oss don't
seem to be good enough.)
