virtual_oss is not a runtime dependency for chromium. You need to configure it
before using, so it won't help you if it's installed with chromium. And it's
useless with ALSA(alsa-lib supports asound.conf) and PulseAudio, both can
select audio input/output.

Now it forced to be installed even if won't be used. virtual_oss dependency
should be removed or be optional and enabled by default with only SNDIO
