Hm. Ok, you are right, I've should have checked more closely. Only the allocation of
the register cache was moved from the drivers to the core.

So the commit messages should have been along the lines of:
	The multi-component patch(commit f0fba2ad1) moved the alloction of the
	register cache from drivers to the ASoC core. While most of the drivers were
	converted to respect this change, some still maintain their own register
	cache besides the one used and allocated by the core.
	Thus the device ends up with two from each other incoherent caches, which
	can lead to undefined behaviour.

If there are no other issues with this series, I'll resend it with adjusted commit
messages in a few days.
