Yes, it was copied from there.

The key problem here is that you sent a change saying "change the
default volume" with no other context in either the changelog or the
code.  If you've got code that's actively managing the volume register
while presenting a nice view to the application layer so that the
register value isn't directly seen in the way it is for standard ASoC
controls that's a very different thing to standard code.  I'm not going
to remember the details of everything in every CODEC driver.

So what you're doing here is really a bug fix for the ramping code.
