blah, i had this queued locally with a "todo:split".  wanted to wait
for Barry to finish developing the driver first though.

at any rate, i hate to sound like a broken record wrt my alsa
ignorance, but i'm thinking the logical split would be like Barry
numbered it -- one patch for sound/codec/, one patch for the TDM
transport, and one patch for hooking up the AD1938 to TDM.

so should sound/soc/blackfin/bf5xx-ad1938.c even exist in the first place ?
