snd_pcm_hw_params_choose() in alsa-lib/src/pcm/pcm_params.c:
/* Choose one configuration from configuration space defined by PARAMS
The configuration chosen is that obtained fixing in this order:
min period time
max buffer size
min tick time
au88x0_pcm.c has period_bytes_min = 0x1 and periods_max = 32.
Is that periods_max an actual hardware limit?
