Thank you for quick review!

OK.  I will do.

OK, then I will move irq/mem resource stuff to the DAI driver and dma
resource stuff to the DMA driver.

I placed them in the machine driver because both DAI and DMA drivers
need the mem resource.  I can move the mem resource stuff into the DAI
driver since the DAI driver will be probed before the DMA driver.

OTOH, I want to keep arch code as is.  There are some TXx9 SoC
variations and they can have different baseaddr/irq/dma.  I want to
leave these details in arch code and make ASoC drivers generic as
