OK, here is the patch.

From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>
Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: sb16 - Fix build errors on MIPS and others with 13bit
 ioctl size

One of ioctl definition in sound/sb16_csp.h contains the data size
over 8kB, and this causes build errors on architectures like MIPS,
which define _IOC_SIZEBITS=13.

For avoiding this build errors but keeping the compatibility, manually
exapnd with _IOC() instead of using _IOW() for the problematic ioctl.
