According to
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/sound/audio-graph-card.txt
it should be something like this:
&mcbsp3 {
#sound-dai-cells = <0>;
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&mcbsp3_pins>;
status = "okay";

ports {
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;
port@0 {
reg = <0>;

cpu_dai3: endpoint@0 {
dai-format = "dsp_a";
frame-master = <&cpcap_audio_codec1>;
bitclock-master = <&cpcap_audio_codec1>;
remote-endpoint = <&cpcap_audio_codec1>;
};

cpu_dai_mdm: endpoint@1 {
dai-format = "dsp_a";
frame-master = <&cpcap_audio_codec1>;
bitclock-master = <&cpcap_audio_codec1>;
remote-endpoint = <&mot_mdm6600_audio_codec0>;
};
};
};
};

If you span out dummy DAIs got dai1+ then how you will get anything
working via endpoint1+?
There will be no ops for McBSP, so it is not going to do anything...

The audio-graph-card.txt example shows pcm3168a which have two DAIs,
one for playback and one for capture.

I guess Morimoto-san can explain if he carries out of tree patches to
get the described setup working on top of mainline...

But, no, based on the documentation I don't ;)

That's an option, yes, if we really need extra dummy McBSP DAIs at all,
again, let's hear from Morimoto-san or Mark.

For some it should not be a big deal as they only boot in DT mode.
/me adds this to the TODO list.

Thanks!

I think I should put my droid4 out and try to get it working...
Do you have a link for dummies to follow to get started? ;)
