It's not always true -- that's the whole problem I'm concerned.
Apparently old apps do include linux/soundcard.h.
I agree to remove the stuff causing warnings, i.e. moving oss-lib part
to sys/soundcard.h. In this case, the only possible regression is the
case where apps use OSS-lib and include linux/soundcard.h. For other
cases (use sequencer stuff with linux/soundcard.h but without
oss-lib), it will still work.
