Debugging Soundcards

If you want to help testing soundcards, you'll have to provide a debug log in case of problems, please enable debugging in portcls, \reactos\drivers\wdm\audio\backpln\portcls\private.h; replace #define NDEBUG with #define YDEBUG. Rebuild.

Notes: Testing

Latest versions of Winamp suffer of an annoying bug in ros that won't let you click on it as if the main window were transparent. I've done some tests and the last "clickable" and "working" version is 1.90. After 1.90 Winamp crashes but its main window is still clickable until 2.08. Special pack for ros made from 2.90 + 2.08 here. Gabriel_it
