I've been trying to get the JDK to compile with the new /permissive- switch in VS2017 (https://devblogs.microsoft.com/cppblog/permissive-switch/) however there have been a few issues in various parts of the code.  There are a few issues in the libjsound code where we attempt to assign string literals to LPSTR variables (instead of LPCSTR).  I took some time to fix some of these and attached a patch.  Let me know if you have any comments/feedback.  I'm assuming that libjsound is owned by sound-dev, but if I'm mistaken, please do let me know the right team/mailing list to send this to.

c:/Users/Andrew/Documents/mercurial/openjdk/jdk/src/java.desktop/windows/native/libjsound/PLATFORM_API_WinOS_DirectSound.cpp(363): error C2440: 'return': cannot convert from 'const char [16]' to 'LPSTR'
