I tried this today and I can't get it to work.  It is failing in
snd_hda_lock_devices called from azx_load_dsp_prepare.  The DSP is
loaded from ca0132_init which is called as the result of open/resume.
Both the check for open control files and attached substreams are
failing. How can that be avoided?
