Hi Nicolin,
This patch is an improvement, but in my opinion the binding is still a 
bit confusing.

How about changing 'frame-master' and 'bitclock-master' to 
'codec-frame-master' and 'codec-bitclock-master'. We could possibly keep 
the old names as aliases until all the .dts files out there have been fixed.

At the same go we could add SND_SOC_DAIFMT_MASTER_MASK here:

 > /* get CPU/CODEC common format via simple-audio-card,format */
 > priv->daifmt = snd_soc_of_parse_daifmt(node, "simple-audio-card,") &

or leave the masking out all together. Can't see why 
SND_SOC_DAIFMT_CONT/GATED could not be defined at dai-link level too.

This way the norm would be defining the daifmt at link level. We could 
still keep the possibility to overwrite the setting at dai level if 
there is need for that.

Best regards,
