I am using the oss commercial drivers on a Dell Inspiron I4100 and
noticed that I had some issues with IRQ sharing between sound and USB.
I had written 4Front about it because I prefer the OSS commercial
drivers for the I810 overall.  You may want to check if you are sharing
IRQs between devices.  The solutions to basically the same problem that
they gave was to turn off USB if not needed (not a solution for me) or
edit their config file and change a value.  By changing the config file
for the commercial drivers, OSS works very well now.  

After I made the change mp3blaster and xmms can play a song through all
the way :)
