Hm, I guess that would work as well. Though it would require that a codec
driver does not add DAPM widgets after it has been probed.

My idea about the stream widget was, that it takes a stream name and is not
connected anywhere. If the stream is active, that widget ensures, that the
context gets powered, so it would basically mimic the current behaviour for
If we wanted to use it to connect to the outside world, we'd probably be better
off using the already existing widgets. For example ADC, DAC widgets with
