Then it implies that the hardware doesn't set this bit.  It's supposed
to be mandatory, and this probing mechanism works well for other
hundreds of devices.  Thus I think something still wrong in your
device setup.

If you know the slot number of the codec beforehand, you can modify to
force to set chip->codec_mask in azx_reset().  Then the driver will
continue to probe the codec.
