From the cover letter:
Even though the ipq806x LPASS does not contain an audio DSP, other SOCs
do have one. For those SOCs, the audio DSP typically controls the
hardware blocks in the LPASS. Hence, different CPU DAI driver(s) would
need to be used in order to facilitate audio with the DSP. As such, the
LPASS DT contains an adsp subnode, which is disabled for this SOC. The
same subnode should be enabled and populated for other SOCs that do
contain an audio DSP. Not using the audio DSP would require different
CPU DAI driver(s), in addition to possible bootloader and/or firmware
changes.

This was the result of a request from Mark. See here:
