If you look at pxa2xx-ac97 you'll see that for that there's actually two
drivers (both of which now share most of the actual hardware access code
thanks to some good work by Dmitry Baryshkov), one for the non-ASoC AC97
framework and one for use within ASoC.  Both can be useful, though the
ASoC one is only useful if people design boards which can make use of
the extra features it provides.
