No, you're wrong there:

CPU DAI:				Codec DAI
dma-playback	--->	i2sdo	--->	Playback
		`-->	spdifdo -> not connected
dma-capture	<---	i2sdi	<---	Capture

And the intermediate level is needed to determine which outputs from
the chip are wired up.

This structure, which is what ASoC normally does, for this SoC is wrong:

dma-playback	--->	Playback
dma-capture	<---	Capture

because it contains no information on how the connectivity between the
codec and DAI is performed.

And don't even say "use dpcm" - if you say that, I want _you_ to write
it because dpcm is totally and utterly unusable as it currently stands -
as you can see from all the emails I've sent over the weekend.
