In a sense the dapm context is like a common base class to both platforms and 
codecs. So it's probably better to remove 'card' from the codec and platform 
structs. codec->dapm.card is as expensive as codec->card while looking up the 
card for the dapm context by either going through the platform or codec is more 
expensive than using the direct pointer. But hopefully the component stuff will 
fix that all.
