Could you please be more specific about what you mean when you say
"amplifying pops control"?  What exactly is an "amplifying pop" (do you
mean that you hear an unwanted noise, or is there something else)?

Please ensure that you are using the latest version of the WM8993 driver
(including wm_hubs.c) to make sure that you have all the latest bug
fixes and enhancements.  If you are not using single ended line outputs
from the device you should also mark the line outputs as being in
differential mode for maximum power savings.

System resume and power up are identical from the point of view of the
CODEC driver.

The WM8993 has a large number of amplifiers, there are many audio paths
in the device and most of them have some amplification control.  Which
outputs are you concerned about?
