snd_BUG_ON() returns the return value of WARN() which is the value of the

This is the point of this debugging macro.

A four-operator sound needs two voices with that offset.
opl3_get_voice() takes care of allocating appropriate voices for that,
but this case is not checked with snd_BUG_ON(). It would be possible to
add snd_BUG_ON(voice+3) into the if().

There is a snd_BUG_ON(device>=8) in line 291, so device can be at most 7.

Same type of false positive; it looks as if >= in snd_BUG_ON() is not
