No results yet, as I did not have time to test linus's tree. Ill be
able to do it over the weekend, and will come back with updates. For
now, the way I got it to work nicely was just taking the sound and
include/sound dirs, sticking them on a tree, and adding the
device id as Wei instructed. Otherwise, there were segfaults all over
the place.
