Something like "fsl-pcm-audio", but different from "fsl-pcm-audio"
will be instantiated as a hardware block by device tree,
"imx-pcm-audio" is pretty much like a ASoC wrapper for calling
dmaengine driver. So there is no hardware block presenting this
"device" in device tree, and we need to instantiate it from cpu DAI
driver as Mark suggested.
