That's a bit of a general problem for ASoC.  It'd be possible to deal
with it by passing in configuration from the machine driver which
selects which controls are registered or which uses the ability to
disable controls that you've got in your unstable tree.

Normally it's not a big deal since end users never see the ALSA controls
directly but interact with a device-specific UI instead.
