Last week Takashi Iwai of SUSE sent in the main audio/sound changes for the Linux 4.7 kernel but with the 4.7 merge window not being quite over yet, he's sent in a second helping of sound driver updates.

New to this second pull request includes new ASoC drivers for the MAX98371 and TAS5720 chips, SPI support for the TLV320AIC32x4, TDM support for STI Uniperf IPs, and new Realtek codec support of the ALC295 and ALC3254 chips.

Some other changes include the HDA driver fixing headphone noise for the Dell XPS 13 Skylake 9360 laptop, an ACPI driver match for the Lenovo 100S, and various other code improvements/fixes.
