My wild guess is that the device file doesn't match with the kernel
setting. You can build ALSA drivers with dynamic minor numbers. In
this case, the minor numbers of device files are assigned dynamically,
and thus the device files must be handled via udev. If you have
static device files with different numbers, this won't match
