OK, then the driver needs to be fixed so that this is an actual DAI and
not analogue.

Via AIF widgets, supply widgets or something else.

Yes.  The board design for advanced audio subsystems (like those found
it smartphones) is non-trivial and worth representing as a device in
itself.  Please see previous and repeated discussions on list, I'm fed
up of having to go over this with everyone individually.

Note also that even where some generic code that applies to multiple
boards is used you *still* need something out side the driver to join
everything together.
