I don't have the context here, so feel free to ignore me. But it seems
like such a tiny amount of extra bits to add to make Cometlake work,
and then there's no hassle for the distributions when Cometlake
devices start showing up in the wild. So while things are more or less
the same, why not continue piggypacking off the default?
Or are you saying that the lack of DMIC support means the default
should be to use a different driver?
