Not sure what should be fixed here..

OK so what's the fix for snd-soc-audio-graph-card expecting a
separate DAI then?

Yeah I don't know either, but the pins we have muxed for
/* 0x4a100106 abe_pdm_ul_data.abe_mcbsp3_dr ag25 */
OMAP4_IOPAD(0x106, PIN_INPUT | MUX_MODE1)
/* 0x4a100108 abe_pdm_dl_data.abe_mcbsp3_dx af25 */
OMAP4_IOPAD(0x108, PIN_OUTPUT | MUX_MODE1)
/* 0x4a10010a abe_pdm_frame.abe_mcbsp3_clkx ae25 */
OMAP4_IOPAD(0x10a, PIN_INPUT | MUX_MODE1)
/* 0x4a10010c abe_pdm_lb_clk.abe_mcbsp3_fsx af26 */
OMAP4_IOPAD(0x10c, PIN_INPUT | MUX_MODE1)
Isn't the data receive there as mcbsp3_dr?

Yeah or maybe it just needs to be handled directly in the cpcap,
mdm6600 codec drivers?

Oh so make simple-card spin up the dummy dai instead of mcbsp?

I guess I'm getting really confused now.. Are you saying
the dts needs to be changed too now?
