This breaks support for many older programs which only support OSS (real OSS... with fopen() support )

Would anything be broken if these kernel options were compiled as modules then blacklisted? I could then enable by editing a blacklist file instead of --recompiling a new kernel--

My suggestion: compile the OSS support as modules, then blacklist by default.
