It was vague because I wasn't sure if it it made sense :)

Exactly, that was what I was wondering about.

We could look at whether some can be brought into the core. They tend
to be around hwfifo parameters. Those could be specific to individual
buffers rather than device wide so at least some of them are correctly
placed in the buffer directory (I think - I've argued with myself about
this a few times in the past).

The only oddity we'll get from current approach is callbacks appearing
to access a container structure that they aren't associated with in the
driver. Its the sort of interface that no one would ever realize was
possible.
