Possibly, depends how many machines we can cover. I also have extremely
little time, so I'm not that keen on volunteering :-) I'll *try* to have
a look some time this or next week.

The main problem is the difference in the way the layout of the codec
etc... is reported from the DT by the firmware. Otherwise the HW is the
same between pre-AOA and post-AOA really ...

I do have a bunch of DT snapshots lying around, so I can try to figure
out something.

Dan, Mark, what machine models specifically do you have ? (compatible
property in the DT pls, ie, /proc/device-tree/compatible).
