Mediatek mt7981 and alsa sound (wm8960)

Hi all,
I've just started working with openwrt as a new developer. I my project, we need to be able to interface audio from mt7981 to wm8960 (or similar codec) using i2c/i2s/alsa. I found out that mt79xx is audio driver is now obsolete, and it is replaced by mt7986 audio driver. What would be the best approach to achieve audio on mt7981? Can I modify or adapt or use mt7986 driver somehow (I think they are quite similar). Or is there a better way?
