I was thinking more generic here. e.g. additions to soc.h :-

static inline int snd_soc_get_framesize(int clock, struct snd_pcm_hw_params *params);

A caller could vary clock based upon it's divider options. Error would
be returned if there was not enough bandwidth.


static inline int snd_soc_get_divider(int clock, struct snd_pcm_hw_params *params);

This would return the integer divider required or bandwidth error.


static inline int snd_soc_get_min_clock(struct snd_pcm_hw_params *params);

return min bit clock required for params.
