After the sound tree from 2.6.16 did work fine, I used git-bisect to
find the offending commit:

$git-bisect good
3bf75f9b90c981f18f27a0d35a44f488ab68c8ea is first bad commit

[ALSA] Clean up PCM codes (take 2)

- Clean up initialization and destruction of substream instance
Now snd_pcm_open_substream() alone does most initialization jobs.
Add pcm_release callback for cleaning up at snd_pcm_release_substream()
- Tidy up PCM oss code

...which happens to be the commit which contains the bug you already
mentioned. I wonder if there is a second one hidden somewhere in that
commit, or if git-bisect led me to that bug while the second one is
hidden in a different commit...
