This causes problems on some hardware, e.g. inconsistent mute LEDs.
So you cannot do it unconditionally. We did it in the past, but had
to switch the forced resume later.
Maybe we can add a flag indicating that the codec resume may be
delayed. Then the bus resume checks the flags and skips the codec
resume if it's set.
