So, as I mentioned before I find this sort of direct mapping of the
Linux device representation into the device tree really troubling.
I'm just way too aware of the fact that even the Linux split of these
things can change over time and often represents internal Linux

This doesn't seem like something that should be in the CODEC driver
really, there's a general need for something which can unmute controls
at the end of the power up sequence and mute before power down.  Also,
if this is going to be part of the binding shouldn't we just omit the
first property and simply check for the presence of the property which
specifies the GPIO?

This really seems like we should be stubbing out of_find_node_by_name()
to return false in non-OF cases.

Similarly here.
