This is a tracking bug for Change: SOF as default audio driver for Intel LPE hardware
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/SofDefaultForIntelLpe
Intel LPE audio hardware has 2 drivers in the mainline kernel the SST driver and the SOF driver, switch the default driver from SST to SOF.
We have reached the 'Code Complete (testable)' milestone in the Fedora 34 release cycle. If your Change is in a testable state, please set the status to MODIFIED. If this Change will not be ready for Fedora 34, please set the version to rawhide.
The 100% code complete deadline is Tue 2021-02-23.
This has been testable since the 5.11-rc1 kernel build by adding snd_intel_dspcfg.dsp_driver=3 to the kernel commandline; and I have been going over the extensive test plan from the Change page this way for a while now (working my way through all the different hw configurations).
And now that this merge-req has landed:
The SOF driver is now the default on Bay and Cherry-Trail hardware, starting with the 5.11.0-0.rc7.20210210gite0756cfc7d7c build, moving this to modified.
Reminder: The change complete (100% complete) deadline for Fedora 34 changes is Tuesday 23 February. At that point, changes should be 100% code complete, along with supporting documentation where appropriate. Please indicate this by setting the tracker bug for your change to ON_QA.
The kernel changes for this have landed in the F34 repos with the 5.11.0-0.rc7.20210210gite0756cfc7d7c.150 kernel build, moving to ON_QA.
