I am going to invite you over for dinner to eat steamed vegetables :)
If I make the steamed vegetables in the microwave and they taste like 
steamed vegetables, are they steamed vegetables ?

I have a bcm2835 (Pi 2 and 3) SoC here. It is producing multichannel (8 
out, 6 in) audio. In ALSA we call that DSP mode - right ?!

If a chipset can do multichannel, do we need to invent a new DSP mode 
name to call it dsp mode ? Surely not, because steamed vegetables are 
steamed vegetables :)

Just because steamed vegetables are made in the microwave doesn't mean 
they don't belong in the Linux Kernel !
