BIG WARNING: on my system, the PCI device 00:07.1 is an IDE controller with
a hard disk. The default udev configuration, however, assigns the
name /dev/dsp1 to this PCI device. The results are predictable if a user
does not know about this :(

Fortunately, I have done some testing in the separate /udev directory and
avoided this issue.
