No, all it does it sets the maximum size to something that is aligned, an 
application can still choose something else.

And this is the wrong approach anyway, we don't want to have new 
snd_pcm_hardware for drivers using generic dmaengine PCM driver.

The right approach is to modify the dmaengine PCM driver to set a constraint 
that makes sure that the period size is a multiple of the burst size.
