Sorry, we're not finished with the upstreaming yet. The current patches
upstream are for the low level parts of the Intel DSP drivers. Jarkko
and I still have to upstream the upper layers of the drivers (probably
today) and you will also need firmware.
Once upstream the drivers will support Valley View, Baytrail, Haswell
and Broadwell. The firmware for Baytrail and Valleyview will be
available shortly too.
