THe OPL-3 (and variants) is _not_ an audio device (/dev/audio and
/dev/dsp) per se -- it's a synthesizer (/dev/music).  You can play MIDI
files through it, but not .au or .wav.  Support is enabled in OSS by
turning on the OPL-3 (and generic synth support) in the sound portion of
the kernel config.  It's not PnP ... the OPL-3 _always_ sits at (doing
this from memory) 0x388.
