Yeah, sorry I was 100% misunderstood.
I thought there is a case that defered card connected to
unbind_card_list, and try snd_soc_init_platform/codec again
without freeing memory...
very mess

Yeah, agree.
Best solution is removing legacy style, I think.

Indeed there is such case so far, but my understanding is that current
driver should select "legacy style" or "modern style".
If driver setup it as "legacy", but access to "modern" member,
it is driver side bug, right ?
