Your problem is that something keeps making calls to non-existent
devices.  I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that some program you
are running is attempting to access multple sound devices and you don't
have them.  If you're running devfs then the driver load will be
happening automatically, and failing (which is proper).

If this is the case, not only is it not broken, it's working correctly.

I/O, I/O,
It's off to disk I go,
A bit or byte to read or write,
I/O, I/O, I/O...
