The driver uses bitreverse functions but does not select BITREVERSE
in its kconfig description, so the bitrev functions are not built
into the kernel.  In the kbuild robot supplied config file,
FSL_SPDIF=y and BITREVERSE=m, which causes the build error.
By having this driver select BITREVERSE, CONFIG_BITREVERSE=y so there
is no build error.

That commit makes no sense to me regarding this build error.

This driver uses bitrev functions even way back in 3.x so this
patch could be applied to many stable kernel versions.

It's the only source file in sound/soc/fsl/ that uses bitreverse functions.
