The ideal thing in a component model would be to represent those sample
rate convertors directly to usrspace so the routing and rewriting is

Is there any *need* for these to be user configurable? What's normally
happening at the minute is that either the external DAIs are fixed
configuration and the DSP just converts everything or there's no format
conversion done and things get passed through.
