Is this derived from Jarkko's patch? If so, shouldn't he be listed as
the author, not you? If it wasn't, then presumably his S-o-b line
shouldn't be in the patch description.

This patch causes problems for me. I see an enormous amount of spew
during kernel boot along the lines of:

(but repeated for about 28 widget/route pairs)

Perhaps it's related to:

These values cover at least bits 3:2.

whereas these values cover bits 2:1. Should the shift be 2? Even with
that fixed, the old 5639 value was 2 << 2 but the new value here is 0 <<
2. Similarly, the old 5640 value was 3 <<2 whereas the new value is 1 <<
2. There's obviously quite some confusion here.

The schematic of my board says I have an RT5640, everything worked
before this commit, and register 0 (where these values are stored) reads
as 0xc which matches the RT5640 value before this commit but not after.

I can see why this patch causes the driver to support the wrong chip.
However, I can't imagine why that causes all the log spew at startup.
Perhaps the driver is just broken on RT5639 at present (although I don't
recall seeing any issues when booting on a board that actually had
one...) Is part of the driver keying off this now incorrect ID register
read, yet some other part of the driver registering widgets/routes based
on which entry matched in struct i2c_device_id rt5640_i2c_id, hence
they're falling out of sync due to this change? If so, that seems like
another bug that needs fixing.
