[PATCH 5.10 114/152] ASoC: meson: axg-tdm-interface: fix loopback

commit 671ee4db952449acde126965bf76817a3159040d upstream.

When the axg-tdm-interface was introduced, the backend DAI was marked as an
endpoint when DPCM was walking the DAPM graph to find a its BE.

It is no longer the case since this
commit 8dd26dff00c0 ("ASoC: dapm: Fix handling of custom_stop_condition on DAPM graph walks")
Because of this, when DPCM finds a BE it does everything it needs on the
DAIs but it won't power up the widgets between the FE and the BE if there
is no actual endpoint after the BE.

On meson-axg HWs, the loopback is a special DAI of the tdm-interface BE.
It is only linked to the dummy codec since there no actual HW after it.
>From the DAPM perspective, the DAI has no endpoint. Because of this, the TDM
decoder, which is a widget between the FE and BE is not powered up.

>From the user perspective, everything seems fine but no data is produced.

Connecting the Loopback DAI to a dummy DAPM endpoint solves the problem.
