These parameters are exposed considering the fact that DMIC itself is
not part of the codec. Codec only provides DMIC interface using which an
external DMIC can be attached. These parameters depend on the actual
DMIC hardware and hence kept configurable to allow runtime plug in of
any DMIC hardware. Doesn't it make sense to keep them runtime
configurable?

Can you explain which value / user supplied value you are referring to?
It is not quite clear to me.

Will add required checks in set_fmt().

I guess here a DAPM_SUPPLY widget should be used and its routing should
be part of machine driver instead of this codec driver, right?

For other things like input mixers, Headphone and Lineouts, DAPM is
already used to control power specific bits. The confusion is because
there are two separate control bits for these blocks. One bit is for
"Enabling" that block and other is for "Enabling Amplifier" of that
block.
e.g for headphone, one bit is for "output enable" while other is for
"output amplifier enable".

Chip designers have confirmed that "Amplifier Enable" bits are ones
which should be used for power management. This is the reason why
"Enable" bits are being set in probe() and "Amplifier Enable" bits are
being taken care by DAPM. May be I need to put enough comments in code
to clarify this.
