The main reason most of these programs don't "work" right now is they were
fixed at one point.  The dmasound driver used to be in big endian mode.
Now, it's in LE mode and all the old patches need to be reversed on LPPC,
but not for MkL.  It can be a bit messy.  But, there is a semi-elegant fix
for it all.
