Yes, this will change too (see my mail to Maynard). No IBS outside of
op_model_amd.c. The solution is copy the samples directly in
sync_buffer() until a new escape code is received. Internals of the
samples (type, size, etc.) are not needed in this case. The address
convertion will use existion functions as well.
