It's on my list to do something about this but if we're going to do
anything it should be in generic code - this is an issue which affects
a growing number of devices and there's enough code to mean that it
should be librified.  This should ideally also involve compressing the
cache itself since that has a similar effect again.

I'm not a fan of doing device specific stuff here since it will make it
harder to transition those devices to use generic code, causing hassle
trying to maintain the subsystem.  The size impact of doing something
simple is a bit annoying but not usually a pressing issue on devices
that would want a CODEC with a noticably large register map.

By the way, please try to provide prefixes for your patches which are
consistent with those normally used for the code you are modifying
rather than making up your own.
