[alsa-devel] [PATCH] ASoC: core: Better support for idle_bias_off suspend ignores

If an idle_bias_off device is in any state other than off then it is still
active for some reason (typically a low power function such as accessory
detection). This wasn't an issue when the feature was implemented as we
always went to _ON for any active function, subsequent power improvements
have changed things.

With the modern way of doing things we should overhaul the infrastructure
to allow devices to explicitly take references for these functions but
that's a much more invasive change and will require driver updates to
deploy, this will bring the framework into line with the existing driver
set before we do that work.
