[alsa-devel] [PATCH 4/4] ASoC: wm8997: Use async writes

From: Mark Brown <broonie at linaro.org>

When writing the patch write to the device asynchronously, allowing better
performance when used with a bus like SPI which supports this by
minimising the need to context switch back to the driver to get the
next bit of data.
