But on platforms where they can enable the WCLK early they shouldn't be looping
around here for anything like 400ms. In an ideal world when that widget is
run SRM should hopefully be already locked but the code does allow for some
delay. Actually, having a long delay also helps show the user that something
isn't right here so I'm somewhat loathed to change this.

Even if you do reduce the retry timings what you're still not protecting
against is the possibility of audio artefacts when SRM finally locks. You want
this to lock before the any of the audio path is up so I think we need to find
a way to resolve that rather than relying on getting lucky with a smooth
