I am using a platform based on the Minnowboard Turbot that contains a
TLV320AIC3104 connected via I2C and the Atom's LPE interface. I am also
using Linux kernel 4.8 which supports SSDT Overlays for augmenting
open-ended hardware configurations for ACPI (see

I've noticed that since 4.6, the tlv320aic31xx driver should pick up ACPI
tables with a hardware ID of "10TI3100" (apparently to support the Lenovo
100s). I have written a overlay based on a mix of the DSDT for Lenovo 100s
and the Minnowboard example in the kernel documentation. I have attempted to
load the driver via the EFI method as well as the configfs method in the
documentation, but both cause an immediate kernel panic when loaded.

It appears to be a null pointer dereference in the aic3x_i2c_probe function.
I'm pretty green when it comes to kernel debugging, but I'll see if I can
track down any more details.

Has anyone had any success using the getting a audio codec working with the
