Yay, someone finally removing this.

I never saw this going in, but when I read through it, it was totally
iPAQ specific.  Having seen soo much effort put in to the OSS driver
to make it flexible, have the iPAQ people use that, and then write
their own ALSA specific driver irked the people who contributed to
the OSS driver, to the extent that the OSS support was ripped out.  (So
I have platforms here were there _was_ full sound support but with the
advent of ALSA, lost all sound support.)  It was certainly a sad day
when this driver was merged.
