No problem!

Ok, that may be a flaw when converting to device tree some years ago.
Unfortunately this was incomplete and there is still some platform based
code around.

Generally I think the modern way of checking the machine type is completely
different and machine_is_omap3_pandora() should be replaced by some direct
check for the compatible strings. It also seems as if the snd-soc-omap3pandora.ko
is the only location using this function.

It may depend on other modules being probed successfully.
What is AFAIR missing is the codec driver.

I have made a note in the issues list:


so that it does not get forgotten...

And I may take a look into it when finding time.

BR and thanks for reporting!
