Yes, although I have not studied the details of gta04_soc_init() to
determine why it is not working for you.

Thanks, but that's not necessary. I can work with the git tree as it
is and the patches you have sent.

I have access to a couple of OMAP3530 boards. Although they aren't
wired up for multiple McBSP channels, I can do primitive tests to see
if the code is doing what it should.

For example, yesterday I had 2 codecs registered on 2 different McBSP
channels. And indeed, I had 2 sound card devices in /dev.

Also, I don't have much free time. The boards should be made available
to developers that won't have the hardware sitting cold in a corner
for days at a time.

Today I should have time to create a couple patches for you to
test. Even if they don't work out-of-the-box, they may be enough to
point you guys in the right direction so that you can continue your
great work.
