I don't think your previous mail got sent at all, or at least it must've
been caught by spam filters here...

Why is the machine driver going to be able to come up with a sensible
configuration then?  It's OK to support overriding the configuration
where needed, my concern is about providing a default.

This is about what I'd expect but then surely the next step is for the
driver to choose a defualt BCLK ratio - that's how most drivers work,
they try to generate the exact rate that is needed to clock the data.
Are the bit clock shared between playback and capture?
