Well, I really doubt that we can find a way to have a common driver for this 
combination. You can attach quite a big variety of amps to the outputs (some 
controlled with GPIO, some like the tpa6130 has i2c interface, etc).
To have some kind of "infrastructure" to support all of the possible scenarios 
is just does not worth the effort IMHO.
