Apply this patch to gst-plugins/sys/oss/gstosssink.c

that will fake a failure on NULL_TO_READY state change and generate a fake error..

with libgstplay and gst-player for example you should get 99% cpu consumption because thousands of error signals are thrown to libgstplay which means there's an infinite loop trying to set the pipeline to READY then PAUSED then READY and so on...
