I think the opposite; AUXOUT and SPKOUT aren't the same pin. I meant
that AUX_OUT_P and AUX_OUT_N are different pins, so I'm asking why they're
a single pin in the above pin list (and in the ASoC codec driver). In
contrast, SPKOUT is represented explicitly as two pins which seems to make

I do see that register bit, but the pinout doesn't include it in the
codec's own datasheet nor the AC100 schematics. I suspect that there
really is no MICBIAS2 feature and the register documentation is simply
incorrect, perhaps a carry-over from some other codec? Still, I suppose
that just in case the signal really is routed to one of the pins labeled
"NC" in the datasheet, there isn't too much harm including it in the
driver, and this binding.

I guess that doesn't actually affect the structure of the binding, just
the data contained in the properties, so it's not a big deal if it goes
in like this. Mark might have a different opinion though, since it's
a simple fix...
