Oops, managed to not reply to the list so forwarding now.

Sorry to break the threading too.

Well an HP filter could also be implemented on the DSP (either currently or
theoretically) so direct output is not necessarily out of the question,
though I imagine my postulated test DSP audio codec would realistically be
removed to save space before shipping as PulseAudio is used. 

But perhaps it might now be possible to add an audio codec driver without
needing to recompile the entire DSP kernel (not having looked at how the
linking is performed for "DSP tasks" nowadays)... Does anyone know off the
top of their heads?
