This is the sort of thing that I was referring to when talking about
doing the non-boring drivers separately.  As well as the warnings Lars
mentioned there's a bisection issue here:

Unless the core sets up the I/O before calling probe() the above is
going to mean that the snd_soc_update_bits() call fails since the I/O
operations won't have been set up.  There is a defualt call to set a
regmap up but it's only done after the probe.
