Hm that never arrived here. :(  (Or did you send it to a list only?
Then I missed it.)

 Anyway, you are right, that should be cleaned up.  I have now made
a new update including your suggestions and tested it with ardour3


 The jack_get_microseconds() code I added to

I added it to fix a segfault at jackd start because driver->engine
was NULL in oss_driver_start()...

 Thanx for testing, :)
