Check out the ALSA project drivers and/or a 4 channel soundcard.
It can (apparently ) achieve things like multiple /dev/dsp devices
and co-existing soundcards, but it's usually aimed at playing different
sound streams. A 4 channel soundcard should be able to replicate
the front channels to the back channels and (sort of) achieve what
it sounds like you want.
 Anyone who got 'gdam' (or other MP3 mixing desk software) working
with 0.9 ALSA drivers and a SBLive! 5.1 to provide two sound streams
is invited to tap me with the cluestick.
