This breaks the pcm init for the FT C400 - the reason is once 
again the mismatch between sync and data in terms of channels and period
I didn't notice it, since I was always opening capture and playback at 
the same time.

After reverting it works as expected (for capture + playback) - however, 
the revert is not a fix:
If I open only the playback stream from userspace (using jack with -P),
it will error out and then it will refuse to open pcm even for capture.
But if I first open the device for capture (using jackd with -C), stop 
it, then open just the playback, it works. Not surprising, since the sync
ep was already set up.

Any suggestions on how to initialize the sync ep with its specific
channel and period bytes paramaters?
