The gpio config stuff needs to be removed from the CPU driver. It was pending
due to fear of cross-tree merge issues. The platform specific code to do the
same is already upstream now.
One engineer in my team is already looking into it while testing
Liam's multi-codec

'try to' is the key word here. The driver is not expected to work rightaway.
One might need to make some changes to the CPU driver to just make it
work on platforms with very similar IP.
