Please put the Skylake specific structures in a separate header file, not in asoc.h. 

The file asoc.h is for generic topology structures which are platform independent. The topology code in alsa-lib never parses the platform specific structures.

The Skylake specific structures are needed by vendor applications like Intel topology tool (ITT) to define topology for different platforms. The applications can include both asoc.h, skl-tplg-interface.h and other device specific headers.
