Yeah, it's quite messy at the minute as it predates any subsystem
support for things like multiple DMA channels going into a single DAI on
an AP so it was having to do things it really shouldn't have done. What
ought to happen is that the driver gets refactored to use soc-pcm or
change to represent the mixer block as a CODEC, I think if that happens
then things ought to get easier.
