> BTW, what is the meaning of ao_data.outburst?

audio block size
at least in OSS audio buffer is constructed by n fragments, each fragments
are ao_data.outburst long.

it can accept/play only ao_data.outburst long data packets, if it's
shorter, nothing will happen, if it's longer, it may block in write().

it's usually between 1k and 16k.

if your audio system/layer doesn't have such limitation, set it to some nice
value, 4096 or 8192 is a good start.
