That is not true, the ports in this case are selected based on mixer 
setting or register state even before stream is setup/started in 
WSA881x codec has pretty much similar setup.

Are you suggesting that we have dailink for each usecase like:

"headset capture"
"Analog MIC1 capture"
"Analog MIC2 Capture"


"Analog MIC4 Capture"


"DMIC0 capture"
"DMIC1 Capture"
"DMIC2 Capture"


"DMIC7 Capture"
"Headset Playback"
"Ear Playback"
"Aux Playback"

this is not really doable!

All am saying is that codec can decide which ports it has to select 
based on mixer setting before the stream is setup/started. This updated 
mapping between slv port and master ports is passed as part of the 
port_config in sdw_stream_add_slave().
