Should this be a user visible option or selected by the machine drivers?
To be honest, I'm surprised that the multi-channel support can't only
incur the extra memory consumpton when playing back a multi-channel
stream - I'd have expected the hardware to work in the same way for a
normal stereo stream even if multi-channel support is built in.

Separately please submit a patch removing the needless continuation

The codec driver changes should be submitted as a separate patch.
They're good to go as-is.
