In v3.14-rc4 these two symbols suddenly got removed, see commit
eaff64705dd5 ("ASoC: samsung: Remove invalid dependencies"). It does
exactly what I proposed last year, see
https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/7/14/27 . (That link currently shows a rather
empty page; is lkml.org having problems again?)

That commit is fine with me, of course. I now see no reason to continue
my, rather slowly progressing, search for the problem that you wanted to
get properly fixed. I suppose another commit already fixed it.
