       oss_userdev - OSS client/server audio pseudo device.

       This audio device is not	designed to be used as-is by the users.	It re-
       quires a	specially designed server application that implements the  ac-
       tual  service  (please  see  the	OSS programming	documentation for more
       info). The server application will then create the audio	 devices  that
       can be used to record and/or play audio.

       The oss_userdev driver is a special purpose loop	back audio device that
       can be used when	implementing OSS audio devices based on	a server  run-
       ning in the background.

       o  userdev_visible_clientnodes=0|1  By default (0) common client	device
	  node (/dev/oss/oss_userdev0/client) will be created for  all	server
	  instances.  The clients will then get	directed to the	right instance
	  based	on some	search criteria	(for example UID). This	alternative is
	  best	when using single server application that can serve large num-
	  ber of different sesions.

       If this option is set to	1 then OSS will	create separate	client	device
       nodes  for  each	instance. Applications will have to open the right de-
       vice nodes. This	alternative is best when oss_userdev is	used to	create
       different  kind	of  services  in one system. In	this way for example a
       VoIP link can be	accessed by opening a different	device node than  when
       opening some other service.
