Oh, indeed, that wouldn't work. Note that Daniel had the same remark as
you regarding the mangling of the modes, "leaking" how we implement the
modes (in theory hw could need a different way to be programmed). I
wondered about that as well and now that we have a couple of good
reasons, in kernel timing adjustment for stereo modes will happen in a
v5 of this series.
