Just to further clarify wrt OSS emulation here, it was decided at last
years Plumbers conference audio session (where Mark and I were both in
attendance along with Paul Davis, Lennart Poettering and a lot of distro
folks) that the distros would start dropping OSS support from their
default installs (although OSS could still be installed manually later).

In light of this, new ASoC code will no longer be tested against OSS
emulation. It's just too much of a pain to implement and test for too
little benefit for us (we will still accept OSS emulation patches

Please port your app to ALSA, it's really the easiest option (look at
aplay.c for programming sequence).
