FWIW, sndio has no drivers, it's just a thin layer using the operating
system drivers.

OpenBSD has no driver for the CMI8788 chip but as there seems to be no
public documentation for the chip, I don't plan to work on
it. Sorry. If you plan to use OpenBSD, I could recommend another sound
card, depending on how you plan to use it (latency, precision, etc).
