That's a known issue that we've fixed on the Intel side a month or two
ago. Unfortunately the review cycle is so slow that you don't benefit
immediately from our fixes, what can I say.

It's fine but that's unnecessary, and if you start having multiple
machine drivers with the same codecs you'll duplicate the stream
handling code.

All you need to ensure in a multi-codec or multi-cpu dai case is that
the stream is allocated once, and yes that's typically done as part of
the dailink .startup callback.

Then it's fine to call the stream prepare or enable multiple times from
the individual dai level, and only do the transition for the first call.

See patch "soundwire: stream: only change state if needed" that I just
shared. We've used it both in 'TDM' mode with two codecs hanging off of
the same link and in 'aggregated' mode with two codecs on separate links.
