There's only the opposite in

And actually we don't even have support for the opposite direction in
e.g. alsasrc. Only in alsasink. PulseAudio also only seems to have
support in the sink.

Looking at the code, implementing the inverse of
gst_audio_iec61937_payload() doesn't seem very complicated though,
apart from syncing on a frame start and guessing the correct format.
