(Of course, silence definition is already a hint, however the lack of information forces developers to have a careful behaviour to handle entries on the list.> (I note that in current ALSA PCM interface there's no way to deliver MSB/LSB-first information about sample format.)

No other sound format includes this information in its name so if we name
these formats SNDRV_PCM_FORMAT_{S, U}20LSB_4 they are going to have it
inconsistent with every other one (I assume you meant to include such
information in a format name?).

But information about whether this format is MSB or LSB justified can be
added in a comment so the situation is clear for other developers from
the definition without needing to read the actual processing code.

I have alsa-lib changes ready for these formats - they were needed to
test these patches, will post them when this is merged on the kernel
side (in case some changes are needed which affect both).
