Maybe we should drop this change for now as basic HDMI audio for two
channels doesn't require it. I've also not tested multi-channel audio
yet.

To get HDMI audio working the following patches are required for the dts
https://github.com/codekipper/linux-sunxi/commit/997c622ae10ef136bae0a35a0e9bf9c6dd27910a
and
https://github.com/codekipper/linux-sunxi/commit/4a81676d30a0262c57ffc0827e46c7934fb3b358

they don't need this patch but do need the slot-width-override patch.
