Currently we have the ak452x bits in the snd_ak452x module. I suggest
to proceed with the wm8770 stuff in a similar way (own module). If the
differences between envy24 and envy24ht are really that large, I also
suggest to create a separate module for envy24ht. Both envy modules can
depend upon all the codec modules then.
