If we use 24 bits format on that device to record, the audio samples
it returns are still in 16 bits. So the rate we measured is only the
half of the expected rate. It's a real problem. Apart from the rate,
the audio samples are also wrong if we still decode them with 24 bits
format. Therefore, the better fix is to add a constraint to remove
24bits support.

By the way, we found this issue by "ALSA conformance test", which is a
new tool to verify audio drivers.
