I think the main issue is, that based on the route configuration
(which could be a simple DAPM widget generated by the simple-graph-card),
we may need to configure different bitrates. Tony's hack adding
this knowledge to the cpcap driver is very ugly.

FWIW the datasheet is not for the same chip, but for a similar one.
The audio part seems to be very similar though.
