Yes. The patch should also add a select for SND_SOC_IMX_PCM_FIQ as that is 
used in the same way in the fsl_ssi driver. If anybody is afraid that 
selecting both SND_SOC_IMX_PCM_FIQ and SND_SOC_IMX_PCM_DMA by default adds 
too much overhead you could add boolean sub-options that allow to 
enable/disable support individually.
