Yes, like the SGTL5000 CODEC driver, which needs to read the chip information
in main probe. And then it must use the regmap core APIs directly.

And I have do another research early, all the CODEC drivers who are calling
set_cache_io() in ASoC probes, and before that they all are using the regmap core
APIs instead of ASoC ones if needed. 

I think we should move the set_cache_io() calling more earlier as we discussed
before, but need much more research and testing. Splitting them into another
separate patch later will be much better and easier to be reviewed.
