If the host is normally running with period size 1024 (mandated by JACK
for example) but at some point wants to change one of the plugin's
control parameters 326 frames into a period, it will have to chop the
period into two pieces, [0-325] and [326-1023]. It will then call
run(326) in the plugin to generate/process the first 326 frames, then
change the control parameter value, then call run(698) to
generate/process the rest of the frames.
