I definitely agree we should do that for all the codec Kconfig options.

Agreed.

Agreed.

I think it would be easier for everyone to just auto-select the machine drivers
automatically based on the architecture (so we could have the list of
ARCH_TEGRA_*_SOC here) when SND_SOC_TEGRA is selected.

Not only does this preserve existing configs (including external ones that
aren't part of the kernel tree), it also clearly maps which machine driver to
use for which SoC instead of having users do it by hand.

I'm also opposed to auto-selecting them all, because I don't really like the
idea of auto-including things that might not be needed.

Would that be agreeable?
