It's likely a pre-multi_audio driver (R4 (R3?) API).

find -type c /dev/audio

if you see

then it's an old API driver.
While it should still load and publish devices, the legacy media node 
that is supposed to use it is not finished.

If you see
then it's an R5 multi_audio, but Haiku has a different version of 
multi_audio, so it might not work either...

Does this driver come with source ?

Where did you find it ?
