I'm curious, from what it seems, there is no checking that the input 
sample rate actually matches the configured sample rate? It's perfectly 
understandable for a driver which has 'minimal support', but it's 
something a user must be aware of; for instance if someone does

arecord -r 48000 output.wav

when the input data actually has a rate of 44100 Hz then the file will be 
written with a header specifying 44100 Hz but the data will actually be 
48000 Hz.

It's not an objection on my part, just an observation. I don't know how 
ALSA could enforce this in any way; ideally (barring automatic sample rate 
conversion) one would want an error message that the sample rate specified 
when opening the stream does not match the sample rate of the S/PDIF input
