The most likely cause is that Turtle Beach sound cards are a bit rare.
If a developer doesn't have access to the hardware with which to test
the patch, they're unlikely to claim it.
If you followup to the PR (see detailed instructions here:
http://www.netbsd.org/Misc/send-pr.html#appending ) and you can confirm
that this fixes a problem, and doesn't create any obvious new ones, it's
more likely that someone scanning the database will close the PR by
applying the patch.
