HAL provides the information that the udev rules or scripts would use.
You'd query some property on the HAl device info as to whether hardware
mixing is available or not.

In a more ideal world, the ALSA drivers would directly provide that
information, and you wouldn't need a separate database of device info to
know whether the current hardware and driver support hardware mixing.  I
don't know if ALSA exports that kind of information, however; I'm under
the assumption that it does not.
