Yes, that's also what I'm thinking about.

And for most CODEC drivers which the REGMAP is used, the soc_probe_codec()
will do the stuff work of snd_soc_codec_set_cache_io(), which the CODEC's 
ASoC probe will do too, and almost at the same time.

Then the CODEC drivers stuff work of this is redundant, so we could just
discard the snd_soc_codec_set_cache_io() for the CODEC drivers to simplify
the code.

I'll send one RFC patch of this, and please ignore this patch.
