Not in ASoC V1. You have to understand, ASoC V1 was designed without any
consideration for runtime-bindings and other OF goodies. All connections
between the drivers are static, literally. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if
some ASoC drivers cannot be compiled as modules.
So all I'm trying to do now is get my driver, with warts and all, into the tree
so that I can focus with Liam et al to get a real ASoC V2 up and running.
