That'd be Liam in the multi-component conversion, though obviously that
didn't cause any immediate issues.  The shared I/O code has been present
since mid 2009 though, including the cache management.  This kind of
comes back to what I'm saying about making your code as idiomatic as
possible, the more a given piece of code diverges from standard idioms
the more likely it is that it will be unintentially broken by some other

FWIW using the standard stuff should just be a case providing defaults,
calling snd_soc_set_cache_io() and removing your custom I/O functions.
