Unfortunately it's sometimes have to stick into older stuff :-)

Yeah, valid points. And anyway, this driver can still be found from git
history if needed.

Let's throw a hint here if some hacker is interested that it would be
possible with Nokia N810 (and N800 as well) by developing DAI driver for
OMAP2420 EAC - Enhanced Audio Controller. EAC has dedicated ports for codec
(pins can be muxed to McBSP port 2), modem (not used in N8x0) and bluetooth
(pins cannot be muxed to McBSP).

Unfortunately this EAC is found only from OMAP2420 where McBSP is in every
OMAP so EAC DAI driver doesn't have so generic use IMO. But I'm keen to help
testing and development if someone would do it :-)
