Your description matches my understanding of the hardware setup.

I suppose you mean 1 port, 2 endpoints?

and here too?

I suppose in the end its a question if generic card can provide TDM
support.

I would expect, that MDM6600 codec marks itself as running/stopped
based on call state. That should enable DAPM widgets automatically
when CPCAP_voice is routed to MDM6600?

I provided CPCAP registers for BT call, which should be enough to
figure this out (I did not yet analyze the results myself).

Makes sense to me.
