[alsa-devel] Need general idea how to architect driver for multi-codec board

Well, that does sound easier than rewriting the whole thing. I'll give it a
go at instantiating multiple codecs.
Would this be 'substreams' or is that something else?
Sorry to be ignorant, but I'm a newbie to kernel development (I've
successfully brought up GPIOs and the I2C mux on my board, so I at least
have some simple stuff under my belt).
