I have taken a look about the DSP_A and DSP_B modes in omap-mcbsp.
The only board uses the DSP_B mode is the osk5912 with the tlv320aic23 codec.
I have downloaded the data sheet for the tlv320aic23 and I think that the DSP 
mode in tlv320aic23 is identical to the TDM mode in twl4030 except for the 
clock polarity
twl4030: Samples the data on falling edge, shifts data out (and changes the 
FS) on rising edge
tlv320aic23: Samples the data on rising, shifts data out (and changes the FS) 
on falling edge

This difference is taken care with the SND_SOC_DAIFMT_NB_IF (osk5912) and 

I would say, that I'm still confused over this...
