Yes, this patch must be used in conjunction with Patch2.
But I think here may be a small bug, in order to distinguish it from the driver
autoloading support, make this a separate patch.

I can put this patch together with Patch2 if you think it might look more reasonable.

No, it doesn't break the build. But actually it won't work(autoloaded) when kernel boot and vop device appears.

Although we may only have one vop driver, but in the mic Kconfig, the intel mic/vop/cosm/scif drivers all
recommended to be built as modules, if we don't add autoloading for them, we may need modprobe them
one by one manually both on EP and RC side.

Obviously, for our use case, driver autoloading is more convenient.
