I don't believe there are currently any plans for a hardware-accelerated
back-end for the SI. Creative has said that they'll be releasing a
native Linux OpenAL implementation for the X-Fi cards sometime this
year. That's all I've heard about.
If you have the know-how to do it, you're welcome to add it yourself.
Personally, I use the SI all the time, and I don't miss hardware
accelerated mixing at all.
