SoC idea: improve dsound/winmm

One of the things users complain about is wine's sound quality. Problems
which you experience range from crackling sound in media players to buffer
underruns and high latencies in games.

For a part the problem is caused by crappy audio drivers and soundcards.
None the less are there things in wine which can be improved to reduce the
issues. I don't know this part of the code well but I believe the alsa
driver is far from optimal and second the dsound contains some bugs too.

In this SoC project a student would need to look into the causes of wine's
bad sound quality and try to improve it by fixing winealsa and other parts.
