OK. I have some patches sitting in my tree too that I'm working on. With
that I don't need to know about maximum number of allowed segments and
can send along any number of segment. I will rework them and post them.
fwiw, I will also implement caps API incase like Lars did populating the
other fields though these will not be unused.

For segment size, at this time I don't know any driver that uses it
other than davinci-pcm. For this reason the calculations can be done as
Lars suggested (for minimum of maximum). Do you know in advance if
you're going to amend to drop segment size if we go with what Russell
suggested, or are you going to leave the seg-size in the caps API anyway.
