In an earlier thread, I mentioned that some of this board and chip
specific code does not belong in sound/asoc/* at all, but Mark seemed
to think it does so it can better stay in sync with ALSA API change
etc., which makes sense to m.

That being said, some effort should be made to split out the
chip/board specific settings into platform data which can be managed
by chip/board specific code.
