It is not

No, per your suggestion we made it machine specific driver. Yes will rename it
to mid_machine_mfld as this is Medfield specific machine driver
Does that fix your concern?

The msic.c is msic codec which is specific to Medfield platform only. The other
three codecs are for Moorestown and we will add them ( 3 separate codec drivers)
when we add Moorestown machine (next after completing this)
