Bug Description

This patchset is already in the upstream kernel-5.6, so no need to
send for unstable.
And this patchset will remove an existing kernel module and add a new
kernel module, so need to change the ABI/modules.ignore manually.
The module removed: snd-intel-nhlt.ko
The module added: snd-intel-dspcfg.ko

[Impact]
There is already dmic detection code in the eoan and focal kernel, it
works well on CNL/WHL and later Intel platforms, but it doesn't work
on KBL, SKL and old Intel machines.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1869799/comments/14

[Fix]
The upstream kernel updated the dmic detection code, it will exclude the
old intel machines by default. Then the old machines will use legacy hda
driver like before.

[Test Case]
Install the testing kernel to Dell/LENOVO WHL/CNL and later machines,
they work as well as before.

And a user verifed the testing kernel work on his KBL machine.

[Regression Risk]
Low, those patches come from mainline kernel, I have tested those patches
on the WHL/CNL and later machiens, a user tested it on a KBL machine.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-eoan' to 'verification-done-eoan'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-eoan' to 'verification-failed-eoan'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
