This st->watermark field is also used to provide the hwfifo_watermark
sysfs attribute value. That value should be 'sets' not individual
samples. I'm not sure that's the case here. Note this also effects
the max and min values which will change depending on which channels
are enabled.

I've just checked the docs and watermark is clearly stated to be in
scans but the hwfifo_watermark is not. Which is unfortunate if
there are drivers interpreting it as being in samples as a result.

I haven't looked yet to see what other drivers have this interpreted
as...

Gah.
