SubjectRe: [RESEND RFC PATCH 1/3] ASoC: mediatek: Add binding support for AFE driver

Why are these connection paths configured via device tree? I would
expect that either there would be runtime configurability of these
things (particularly if loopback configurations within the hardware are
possible) or we'd just allocate memory interfaces to DAIs automatically
as DAIs come into use.

Again, this looks like stuff we should be able to figure out at runtime
- the use of SRAM in particular looks like something we might want to
change depending on use case. Assuming it adds buffering then for a
VoIP application we might not want to use SRAM to minimize latency but
during music playback we might want to enable SRAM to minimize power
consumption.
