Yes. Thats the problem. The register cache holds place for 62 elements 
where as there are 63 register which should be cached.
In the register cache access code you subtract one from the registers 
index to get it's index in the register cache array, so the last 
register has the index 62. Which means it is the 63th element of the 
array and thus the array has to consist of 63 elements.

Currently reads to WM8753_ADCTL2 will always return -1 as it is out of 
the register cache bounds which causes the OUT4 control to be unusable 
and as a side effect audio volume will be quite low.

The register cache access code uses one-based indexing so the first 
element in the register cache array will be the register with the number 
1 and the last register has the number ARRAY_SIZE(wm8753_reg).
Now if you set reg_cache_size to ARRAY_SIZE(wm8753_reg) the last 
register will never show up in devices codec_reg sysfs file as its index 
is not lower the reg_cache_size.
