This is an interesting way of naming what is often referred to as oversampling.
I'd like to get some other opinions on naming before we go with the ABI for this..

We do have one driver in staging exporting oversampling_ratio which is probably
the same thing, but that ABI was never standardized so I have no problem with
ignoring that one case. A couple of other drivers provide oversampling control
via platform data. We must make sure we give a sensible default for this.

There is also the interesting question of whether sampling_frequency applies
before or after this... I'd argue after, but again would like more opinions
before we dictate that. However, whatever we choose should definitely be
documented here!
