device or resource busy

Ok, freeamp crashed with the audio device open (/dev/dsp).  Nothing can use
the device.  fuser and lsof show nothing active on /dev/dsp.  No lock files
in /var/lock/.

I can't rmmod the sound modules because they're "in use".  I rm'd /dev/dsp
and mknod'd it but still nothing.  The sound modules won't go away with
/dev/dsp gone either.

Is there a way to remove files that are in use?

Better yet, how do I fix this problem?

A reboot should of course, fix it, but that doesn't solve the actual problem.

But maybe good is more than the absence of bad.
