One thing you might try, depending on the exact situation, is running sndiod
under Linux (assuming it has a driver for this chip) with the -L option to
allow OpenBSD systems to use the sound card over the network. If two 
physical
machines are available, then, only the one plugged in to the audio 
system needs
to run Linux. I've also had success with this from OpenBSD (and other!) xen
guests to the (Linux) xen dom0, for example.
