[alsa-devel] [PATCH v5 2/2] ASoC: sgtl5000: Fix driver probe after reset

From: Fabio Estevam <fabio.estevam at freescale.com>

After a 'reboot' command in Linux or after pressing the system's reset button
the sgtl5000 driver fails to probe:

sgtl5000 0-000a: Device with ID register ffff is not a sgtl5000
sgtl5000 0-000a: ASoC: failed to probe CODEC -19
imx-sgtl5000 sound.12: ASoC: failed to instantiate card -19
imx-sgtl5000 sound.12: snd_soc_register_card failed (-19)

sgtl5000 codec does not have a reset line, nor a reset command in software, so
after a system reset the codec does not contain the default register values
from sgtl5000_reg_defaults[] anymore, as these are only valid after a 
power-on-reset cycle.

Fix this issue by explicitly reading all the reset register values from
sgtl5000_reg_defaults[] and writing them back into sgtl5000 to ensure a sane

Changes since v4:
- Only call sgtl5000_fill_defaults if we know we have a sgtl5000
Changes since v3:
- Read sgtl5000_reg_defaults and write these values into sgtl5000
Changes since v2:
- Do not use reg_defaults_raw as it is not the correct purpose
- Manually build sgtl5000_reg_default
- Improve commitlog
Changes since v1:
- Remove sgtl5000_reg_defaults array
- Do not use num_reg_defaults_raw
