Add distinction between PCI and ACPI HiFi2 platforms.

The PCI-based
platforms may be removed at some point since Medfield is not really
supported by anyone
This is rather true,

and there is no publicly available firmware for
while this is not true. Intel Edison board is based on Merrifield SoC
and I'm sure people are able to make a sound out of it.

I am aware that Edison could run with a modified 4.4 kernel, I just don't know where the firmware is. I don't see anything for Merrifield in /lib/firmware/intel?
If there is a simple way of testing this I don't mind looking into this, I just don't have the pointers.
