Yes, sorry, I didn't cite clearly.  I meant only the last line.
sound/oss/dmasound/Kconfig is included and evaluated outside the block
"if SOUND_PRIME".  Thus, CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE won't be enabled for
drivers in sound/oss/dmasound.

My suggestion is to move that line source sound/oss/dmasound/Kconfig
into the "if SOUND_PRIME" block first, then apply your patch.

Anyway, there are some other minor issues in sound/Kconfig, for
example, why "if !M68K" is there.  We can clean up a bit more.
