Is this OK on power down?  On power down we'll adjust the input path to
the widget then power down the output path so noise introduced by
switching away from the current source will get amplified.  Keeping the
current sequence for power down seems more consistent with what you're
trying to do.

Looking at the mailing list archive the issues previously were partly
things being obscured by this being in terms of the then very
non-standard TWL4030 code and also this:

We've now got the split power down/power up sequences - ideally what
we'd be able to do here is get the route update to happen in between the
power down and power up sequences.
