Thanks, I'll fix this.

A good place to start would be looking at the other supported
architectures and codecs and see what fits in best with your target SoC
CPU. Fwiw, Timur Tabi has some working PPC code, although I'm not sure
if it will work on Efika.

I usually start with the I2S driver and the codec in slave mode. Then
move onto the DMA when I see the I2S bits toggling correctly. After the
DMA is up and running I can complete the codec and I2S drivers.
