Hmm. I considered that, but the reason why the system failed to resume
in my case was that the ssp port was not active at this time. Otherwise,
the suspend/resume code would have already done the right thing.

And as the next client will indirectly call hw_params() again, the code
there will do the right thing with the invalidated cache.

Restoring the register values from priv->dai_fmt would imply adding code
to do everything what the other bit-fiddling functions do in a reverse
manner. Which is something I'd like to avoid :)

Another idea is to unconditionally save and restore the register set,
and deal with possible side-effects. Not sure what's really better.
