The most common case is things like bluetooth SCO connections where if
there's a baseband you want to clock from the baseband but if there's no
baseband (eg, for VoIP calls) you can't do that. Some devices also need
to change audio interface configuration depening on things like the
number of channels.

Even without any dynamic reconfiguration you also have cases where the
sequence people use to power things up is to set the clocking and then
configure the audio interface format - even if the audio interface
format is always the same you'll still get it being reconfigured the
first time you start up.
