Thanks Liam and Jarkko saw your patches related to the Intel SST Audio
Platform drivers, I hope the upstreaming process is complete for this
module. Please let us know when the firmware is available.
I have few question here, the i2s mode should be enabled in the platform
In the Bayley Bay bios I saw that the LPE audio could be enumerated via
PCI or ACPI, the patches I saw mostly cover the ACPI mode. Will the PCI
mode be covered in the patches.
Thanks in Advance
