Right. I'm not attached to the dummy dai, but looks like currently
snd-soc-audio-graph-card won't work without it. And we potentially
do need a place to configure TDM slot specific stuff for mcbsp.

Yes my guess is cpcap voice is the clock master in that case.
It should show up from the cpcap register dump from Android with
audio playing to a bluetooth headset.

Oh, I think there are Android apps to do that though.. Never tried
if they work on droid4. But if they do, doing a register dump of
mcbsp3 would show up how it's configured.

I think the link for the patches you posted is patching the
snd-soc-audio-graph-card already?

Yeah, no idea.. But that's easy to configure in the dts based on
the graph bindings :)

Right. So right now it seems that for snd-soc-audio-graph-card
needs the dummy dai, but it's unclear what would need to be
changed to not use a dummy dai for mcbsp.

The dts snippets I posted earlier do follow the graph bindings
as far as I know. But just to confirm, do you see any need to
move things around there?

Gentoo cool :)

I've had good luck with just plain alpine armv7 edge, the package
updates work very fast for a slow system. The musl stuff requires
running stellarium with 3d acceleration in a minimal devuan or
whatever chroot environment though for stellarium etc..

Yeah you need to configure wpa_supplicant.conf and wlan.conf or
whatever it was called. And make sure you have copied the old
stock v3.0.8 kernel wlan modules and firmware as mentioned in
the droid4-kexecboot git readme and install files.

Oh, and also read about the flags you need to use for mkfs.ext4 if
doing mkfs.ext4 on a PC, the old v3.0.8 kernel won't understand
all the new flags if you want a partition to be readable for the
droid4-kexecboot bootloader. And also the all the old Android
distros currently still stuck with the ancient v3.0.8 kernel :p
