I'm not sure what problems you see here - all the issues that are being
discussed here are about the kctl interface to applications, there's no
issues I can see with the in-kernel interfaces.

But this is an issue solely concerned with the userspace API and is also
going to result in something different to what HDA is doing currently.
I don't see that we need to wait for everyone to make up your mind
what's going on there in order to deal with the custom userspace
interface that HDA has.

Once we've got everything unified then we can refactor in place as we
please and whatever is done will cover all drivers, including any
updates to the core interface required to advertise the new information.
