That would mean, that all existing dtbs would have to be changed, and
older DTBs with newer kernels wouldn't work.
But this patch is obsolete anyway. The simple-card driver can be used
instead of the imx-audio-sgtl5000 as Mark Brown suggested in
<20160112182253.GD6588@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>. I'll post an updated patch series soon.
