Looking at the code again, the PCM rate plugin version checks are done
slightly differently from ext-plugin or io-plugin; it's rather done in
the plugin side.  pcm_rate.c repeats to trying to hook a plugin until
it matches by degrading the version.  In the plugin side, it provides
additional ops depending on the version it's asked.
