The patch

   ASoC: fsl_ssi: only enable proper channel slots in AC'97 mode

has been applied to the asoc tree at

   https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/broonie/sound.git 

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.  

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying

Subject: [PATCH] ASoC: fsl_ssi: only enable proper channel slots in AC'97 mode

We need to make sure that only proper channel slots (in SACCST register)
are enabled at playback start time since some AC'97 CODECs (like VT1613 on
UDOO board) were observed requesting via SLOTREQ spurious ones just after
an AC'97 link is started but before the CODEC is configured by its driver.
When a bit for some channel slot is set in a SLOTREQ request then SSI sets
the relevant bit in SACCST automatically, which then 'sticks' until it is
manually unset.
The SACCST register is not writable directly, we have to use SACCDIS and
SACCEN registers to configure it instead (these aren't normal registers:
writing a '1' bit at some position in SACCEN sets the relevant bit in
SACCST; SACCDIS operates in a similar way but allows unsetting bits in
SACCST).

Theoretically, this should be necessary only for the very first playback
but since some CODECs are so untrustworthy and extra channel slots enabled
mean ruined playback let's play safe here and make sure that no extra
slots are enabled in SACCST every time a playback is started.
