Yes absolutely it is a driver bug, but looking at the snd_soc_dai_link
structure today it is not clear what the driver should be setting and
what is 'modern' and what is 'legacy'. You need to dig through the git
history and code to figure this out. So you could say it is not very
well documented/commented from a soc-core perspective and could be easy
for a driver writer to get themselves in a pickle/mess. Anyway, that is
easy to fix and we could add some comments to clear it up.
