    Currently the msbits constraints requires to specify a specific sample
    format width for which the constraint should be applied. But often the
    number of most significant bits is not sample format specific, but rather a
    absolute limit. E.g. the PCM interface might accept 32-bit and 24-bit
    samples, but the DAC has a 16-bit resolution and throws away the LSBs. In
    this case for both 32-bit and 24-bit format msbits should be set to 16. This
    patch extends snd_pcm_hw_constraint_msbits() so that a wildcard constraint
    can be setup that is applied for all formats with a sample width larger than
    the specified msbits. Choosing the wildcard constraint is done by setting
    the sample width parameter of the function to 0.
