My testcase has been to hack mmdevdrv.c and replace "default" with
"plug:dmix" or "dmix" which is an output only device.  Expected test result
is to behave like most testbot.winehq.org and skip capture tests.
Actual output (prior to your patch) last time I tried was some failures.
I.e. the mmdevapi render and capture tests suggest that there's no
default device for testbots that cannot capture.

How does your alsa_try_open interact with devices that clang onto the
underlying HW resource for several seconds?  (PA does this)
