I do not know why they were added, but the sample rates I removed do not work
today, for anyone.

The sample rate must be programmed into the hardware, and the removed sample
rates do not map to one of the possible register values, so
sun8i_codec_get_hw_rate(), and thus hw_params, will return -EINVAL if one of
them is used.
