Thanks, this version looks better than previous ones, and I'm fine to
apply as is, to make things going forward. But this seems requiring
the prerequisite in ASoC codec side.

Mark, could you send a PR to merge into my tree so that I can apply
those series?

And, one still uncertain thing is about the handling of system
suspend/resume, especially about the firmware loading work. e.g. what
happens if a f/w work is in run and the system goes to suspend at the
very same time? Or does the S3/S4 work in general at all?
