It seems neater if snd_pcm_limit_hw_rates() does the right thing no
matter what the rates are - this centralises the logic for handling this
which reduces the complexity for drivers.

This does make sense, though we'll need to change the constraint merging
code in ASoC since right now it assumes that combining the masks will do
the merge which won't be the case if you have devices with one of these
flags together with any other flags (either specific rates or the other
non-bitmask one).  It would be nice if we were just throwing the device
constraints into the core constraint code and letting it merge them
