This is directly determinable from sample rate and buffer size. Even in
the threaded code, you must have this information or an assurance of a
non-blocking write to /dev/audio short of KERNEL threads. My feeling is
short of a truly uniform thread model across all architectures, you're
tying this very strongly to a single OS and architecture. (Does your
model work with SunOS?) I've had more than a couple of comments that
portability is a key issue here.
