Yes... it looks like this update was only partial.
There were a couple of declaration mismatches so I tried fixing the
prototypes but this was only partly successful. The functions in
soundcard.c and audio.c seem to disagree about whether "soundcard_init()"
needs a mem_start or not.

Apart from this, 1.3.33 seems to be stable here. Forking new processes
is dramatically slower than before (about 4 or 5 times), whereas tcp/ip
throughput seems to have increased slightly :)
