The intention in this case would be for the DSP FE driver to determine
if it can perform format conversion or SRC to the running BE. If the DSP
cant do the conversion then it should fail.

We shouldn't be calling the hw_params() on the BE when it's already
configured in this case. So this seems like a bug. However :-
/* only allow hw_params() if no connected FEs are running */
if (!snd_soc_dpcm_can_be_params(fe, be, stream))
if ((be->dpcm[stream].state != SND_SOC_DPCM_STATE_OPEN) &&
(be->dpcm[stream].state != SND_SOC_DPCM_STATE_HW_PARAMS) &&
(be->dpcm[stream].state != SND_SOC_DPCM_STATE_HW_FREE))
We do do a test to check if any connected FEs are running (i.e.
triggered) prior to calling hw_params() on the BE. Can you confirm if
the FE was running in your case ?
