Sorry for that :-), the alsa-devel is the unrelated mailing list, right?
if so, i will note for that later.

Get it.

On our platform, there have some devices (like hdmi/bt) do not need
config from the CODEC driver, they have their own s/w stack and
interface to configure; for the audio driver, just need to set the
I2S/PCM timing for them. So if there have a common dummy codec driver,
then it can meet our requirement well. Otherwise, there will have some
duplicate codes for these dummy codecs.
