The new cards are using the API but not the code from OSS.

ALSA is a bit unstructured. The API is well designed, the code has issues
and its still evolving. I hope it turns out well.

I'm against changing the API for this. Fix the API by adding positional audio
and to reflect 32+ DSP devices. The existing API is basically sound (pardon
the pun)
