Sorry i was not clear, I meant either there is an issue in the vendor
kernel that doesn't set properly the LRCK or maybe we did something or
forgot to do it that set this inversion.

But I just checked a device-tree used with a kernel vendor and indeed
codecs are inverted but not hdmi so the vendor kernel has an issue
here...

E.g this is what is used for Tanix TX6

daudio@0x05091000 {
compatible = "allwinner,sunxi-tdmhdmi";
reg = <0x00 0x5091000 0x00 0x74>;
clocks = <0x04 0x4d>;
status = "okay";
phandle = <0x63>;
device_type = "audiohdmi";
};

daudio@0x05092000 {
compatible = "allwinner,sunxi-daudio";
reg = <0x00 0x5092000 0x00 0x74>;
clocks = <0x04 0x4e>;
pinctrl-names = "default\0sleep";
pinctrl-0 = <0x4f>;
pinctrl-1 = <0x50>;
pcm_lrck_period = <0x40>;
slot_width_select = <0x20>;
daudio_master = <0x04>;
audio_format = <0x04>;
signal_inversion = <0x03>;
tdm_config = <0x01>;
frametype = <0x00>;
tdm_num = <0x02>;
mclk_div = <0x01>;
status = "okay";
phandle = <0x65>;
device_type = "daudio2";
};

daudio@0x0508f000 {
compatible = "allwinner,sunxi-daudio";
reg = <0x00 0x508f000 0x00 0x74>;
clocks = <0x04 0x51>;
pinctrl-names = "default\0sleep";
pinctrl-0 = <0x52>;
pinctrl-1 = <0x53>;
pcm_lrck_period = <0x20>;
slot_width_select = <0x20>;
daudio_master = <0x04>;
audio_format = <0x01>;
signal_inversion = <0x01>;
tdm_config = <0x01>;
frametype = <0x00>;
tdm_num = <0x03>;
mclk_div = <0x01>;
status = "okay";
phandle = <0x67>;
device_type = "daudio3";
};
