The devices appear via the standard kernel interfaces so if you are
using udev or mdev they should be created automatically.  Otherwise
you'll need to create them statically using whatever method you usually
use (eg, a MAKEDEV script supplied by your distribution or manually by
reference to the device numbers exposed in /sys/class/sound/*/dev).

The ALSA devices use the standard Linux mechanisms to create their
devices so whatever you normally use to create devices should work for
ALSA too.
