CUSE: Character devices in user space

The first cuse driver is an OSS proxy to pulseaudio, that provides /dev/dsp, /dev/adsp and /dev/mixer. The article describes it as likely to be merged in the upstream 2.6.29 kernel. Let us help this become stable so we can count on it for F11.

Assuming cuse OSS proxy is ready for F11, and it works reasonably well as a complete replacement for ALSA's OSS compat layer, we would do the following:

I don't see this happening for F11, so I'll comment on the fallback
strategy.

Seriously? That article says it is likely to happen for 2.6.29. Is this unlikely?

In any case CUSE would undoubtedly be useful to have in the next RHEL. Just imagine how much more flexible RHEL5 would have been to customers if we had fuse back then.
