Support for those is there, and there should be no impact on
performance on those systems either (or more accurately, it won't be
any worse)

I explained the matter in the commit:

When no audio processing is performed, that is: no timestretch, no
upmixing, no resampling etc..
the audio samples stays as fixed accuracy number and pass as-is to the
audio card.

I had this discussion with Danielk a few weeks ago on the matter, and
considerations were made to not impact negatively some hardware

In the worse case scenario, it's just as fast (or as slow) as the
previous code would have done.

It is however, unreasonable to expect some platforms to be able to do
upmixing, resampling etc though...

On X86 (both 32 and 64 bits) platform however, the speed gain is up to
an order of magnitude
