No, that's not at all OK - anything that requires this is broken.  The
same DAI format should be usable by both ends of the link unless the
board itself is inverting one of the signals or something.

This seems closer to what I'd expect for something like this but it does
mean that any format settings on the CPU DAI will be ignored (rather
than say warning or something).  I'm not sure this is a bad thing
though, probably wants the binding documenting at least.
