Scott, as I've said every time you've posted your patch there's several
problems with your patch:

 - The name you've chosen is really not at all suitable, it doesn't
   identify the system at all.
 - This clearly isn't something that affects only one driver - no ASoC
   driver sets a driver name - so a change to a single driver is clearly
   not a good solution even for just Blackfin.

You need to address these issues, they're both blocking.
