This affects all TDM I2S modes, i.e. TDM Normal, TDM Left Justified and TDM
Without tdm-fsync-half-frame, we purportedly get the following output in TDM
Normal Mode (I2S Format):
(ch0l = channel 0 left, ch0r = channel 0 right)
sdi/sdo: ch0l, ch0r, ..., ch3l, ch3r, ch0l, ch0r, ...
With tdm-fsync-half-frame, we purportedly get the following:
sdi/sdo: ch0l, ch1l, ch2l, ch3l, ch0r, ch1r, ch2r, ch3r
At least, according to the TRM. I do not have an oscilloscope to verify this
myself, and in the following paragraphs, I will elaborate why this seems
confusing to me.
The comment block "DAI hardware signal polarity" in soc-dai.h seems to imply
that what the TRM says the tdm-fsync-half-frame mode is (if one inverts fsync
polarity of those waveforms), is what is expected:

I don't know if this is only applicable to non-TDM I2S, and whether it's
normal to have the channels interleaved like that in TDM.
I don't see any DAIFMT that does what this does in any case.
So to answer the question, it's not part of the bus format because it applies
to three bus formats, and I'm completely out of my depth here and wouldn't
define three separate bus formats based on my own speculation of how this
