No, I'm not sure what the problem you're trying to fix here but this
looks pretty terrible. SND_SOC_ALL_CODECS is a debugging tool for build
coverage, we shouldn't be restricting actual useful drivers based on it.
What is the intention of this change and why does it only apply to the
Samsung platform? It all looks very magic.

This is non-idiomatic - we always select the CODEC drivers rather than
depending on them for usability.

Please also split the two changes you're doing here into separate
patches. I might've applied the wm8994 bit but it's squashed in with
the AC'97 change...
