Hi Mark

What is wrong is that the merge path for the first patch, which
removes the boards making use of these drivers, has already closed for
patches.  So we now have boards left in the tree with broken audio. We
can leave it that way, because these boards are actually in the tree
twice. One using DT, which will work as things are now, and old style
board file boards which are broken.

That was my error. I should of also added that you need to apply those
patches before arm-soc closes, so we have time to feed in these
patches. arm-soc generally closes around rc6/rc7, with the mvebu
maintainer closing a little before that.

Since we are past that now, i planned to send these patches next
cycle, without the RFC tag.
