Please don't do this, you're just making everything needlessly hard to
understand by using standard terminology inappropriately and there's a
risk of breakage further down the line with drivers implementing the
standard ops.

That's very, very non-standard...

...indeed, set_bclk_ratio() is a better interface for setting the bclk
ratio - the CODEC driver should really be doing that as well.

Or add a new call that does that.
