Hi Jyri,

After looking at Morimoto-san's mail, I think there might be a better
solution for this issue as he suggested: We may move the fmt from
struct asoc_simple_dai to a common place for both CPU and CODEC.

I'm not sure if there's any defect from this idea, but as long as we
keep DAIFMT settings identical for both dai-link ends, it'll be a
neater way.

So I'd like to pend this patch and wait for further solution from that

Thank you,
Nicolin Chen
