Thanks for your work on this, but I do not think that it is a good idea
to differentiate between the different mk802 (not mk802-ii) models, there
are many variants and the chances of a user knowing exactly which variant
he has are small.

So instead we should do the same as with the q8 formfactor tablets and
strive to have a single dts which works everywhere. Here that seems
easy enough, just always enable the mic input (once we have support for
it), this will give people without the mic just noise if they try to use
it but that is not a big deal IMHO.
