As you know, we have another M2M function internally, when user want to
Set the format through M2M API, it is better to use snd_pcm_format_t instead the
Width, for snd_pcm_format_t include two property, data with and physical width
In driver some place need data width, some place need physical width.
For example how to distinguish S24_LE and S24_3LE in driver, DMA setting needs
The physical width, but ASRC need data width.

Another purpose is that we have another new designed ASRC, which support more
Formats, I would like it can share same API with this ASRC, using snd_pcm_format_t
That we can use the common API, like snd_pcm_format_linear,
snd_pcm_format_big_endian to get the property of the format, which is needed by
