fsync-half-frame is just normal TDM for I2S, the default mode is how DSP
mode normally operates.  I don't know that there's any pressing need to
support mix'n'match here, you could but it should be through the TDM
configuration API.

It is part of the bus format really.  I suspect the hardware is the kind
that only really implements DSP mode and can just fake up a LRCLK for
I2S in order to interoperate.
