Lots of things just don't work with OSS, we stopped caring about it
years ago. The configuration mechanism just doesn't play nicely with
dynamic constraints at all.

OSS in general had been deprecated for 5-10 years.

If it's using OSS it's unlikely to work with ALSA, the two ABIs are
completely different. You need to talk to your proprietary software
vendor about updating their software. There are also some userspace
utilities that try to do the remapping by wrapping things there but I
can't remember the names off the top of my head, it's been a long time.
