I'd say "my bad" ... but in these cases there's seems to be no
better solution than having the DaVinci GIT tree diverge a bit
from mainline ASoC, in synchrony with arch/arm/mach-davinci
which is also diverging from mainline.

There's a general rule that patches should not break builds.
And that rule is why there are several ASoC patches I've not
yet sent to mainline.

The whole ASoC/DaVinci thing has been nothing but build
breakage however, since it depends on EDMA patches which
haven't yet gone to mainline.  (But, I believe, will soon
do so, at which point that breakage will stop.)
