I basically just implemented the mentioned libflashsupport.so. Which is
intended to be an API that can be used to replace the audio output
interface of Adobe Flash. For now this is enough to get Flash
working. Eventually it would be preferable if Flash would using PA
natively. But since the current API will eventually be replaced by
something called libsydney I have not asked Adobe to move this
abstraction upstream. The libflashsupport.so solution is good enough
for the near future.
