I've tried yet another approach now, this should also work and
has simpler dependencies. I'll follow up with the suggested patch
and let you pick one or the other.

Sorry for using the wrong Cc list, I too the addresses out of the
patch that introduced the problem and didn't think about it.

Subject: [PATCH] ASoC: fsl: select SND_SOC_IMX_PCM_DMA where needed

Since commit 204dec93eaa "ASoC: fsl: Allow to select individual common
options", it is possible to enable SND_SOC_FSL_SSI and SND_SOC_FSL_SPDIF
manually, either as loadable modules or built-in. This unfortunately
leads to a link error if one or both of them are built-in, while
the imx-pcm-dma framework is a loadable module:

sound/built-in.o: In function `fsl_ssi_probe':
:(.text+0x51fb8): undefined reference to `imx_pcm_dma_init'
sound/built-in.o: In function `fsl_spdif_probe':
:(.text+0x52e20): undefined reference to `imx_pcm_dma_init'

This changes Kconfig to prevent this case by ensuring the imx-pcm-dma
code is built-in if the i.MX SoC support is enabled and at least
one of the two drivers is built-in.
