Yes, it can circumvent all the unnecessary problems we've been through here
even though the CODEC name 'dummy' doesn't look so flawless. The application
constraints, what I understand should be the supporting formats and rates,
have been already ensured in the CPU DAI driver, so we might not need to worry
for the CODEC one.

Thank you for the suggestion of dummy driver at the first place and..
Happy new year :)
