I see. That was before my time :)

Well, the audio is missing. The current adv748x driver does not export the
audio features of the device at all. There is no code to enable the I2S audio
output and it is disabled (all clock and the data lines) by default.

But, by now it seems to be clear that implementation of ALSA SoC DAI
interfaces is the way to support the audio.

And I am already slowly working on it.

This seems to be an explicitly "digital video" control class. And it has no
control option for mute. Or did you mean a similarly structured new class for
"digital audio"?

This feels like an overkill for this particular driver...
