Hi 2 all.
I've just read many discussions about kernelspace and userspace sound mixing.
Both sides have their arguments, etc. But why not to implement both? If you
don't want to rewrite something there's easy way: just create a driver for
dummy sound card, that will perform kernelspace mixing and will use default
sound card for sound output. Kernelspace mixing will be very usefull for
example for oss kernelspace oss emulation (as you know, userspace one doesn't
work for huge amount of apps), or for dumb apps, that open hw:0 device for
sound and have no option to change output device. Please, think about your
users ;) Let them decide which mixing they wants
