Package versions that might be relevant:

media-sound/alsa-utils-1.1.2::gentoo
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-4.10.6::gentoo

I had a nice chat in #alsa on freenode and they said to report it as a bug to their developers.

The weird part:  When I plugged in my webcam, the microphone showed up as having surround sound capability...but that stuff is directly associated with my snd-hda-intel playback device.
