Well, the "Waiting for space" certainly is verbose ;-) so I
added a VB_AUDIO and also converted a bunch of commented out
printfs. "-v audio" now gives lots of info about what is going
on in the audio loop. I also made the frag size message general
so everyone should see at least:

2004-03-29 14:05:26 Opening OSS audio device '/dev/dsp'.
2004-03-29 14:05:26 Audio fragment size: 4096

If those cards work, my cards work, and the ioctl is mandatory
then we should be okay unless there are driver bugs. Generally,
there is very little feedback for patches that haven't been
committed and at this point I don't expect anyone else to comment.

I'm thinkin' that if it does cause problems for a minority
of users, it could be a checkbox option on the audio setup
page. However, I don't think there needs to be another option
to consider until it proves to cause problems for at least some
people (which it may not).
