Check Documentation/sound/alsa/soc/* files.

It's not clear what you mean exactly as "unfixed", but in general, the
decision rather depends on the usage of the device. If it's designed
for a use as a desktop PC component (such as a PCI card or
onboard-audio on PC), it'd make sense to implement as a stand-alone,
self-contained driver.

OTOH, if it's targeted mainly for embedded area, ASoC is the right
answer. It's more modularized, and can be more flexibly configured in
the end.
