Yes, exactly. The driver has not been updated after the place where the value
is stored, so it is not going to store it at all, which causes issues along
the way.

The relevant code is this:
	if (dapm_kcontrol_is_powered(kcontrol) && reg != SND_SOC_NOPM)
		val = (snd_soc_read(codec, reg) >> shift) & mask;
		val = dapm_kcontrol_get_value(kcontrol);

and when the widget is not powered the code will try to get the value from the
dapm_kcontrol_data, which is not even touched by the custom code in the driver.

When the widget is not powered the stored value is going to be used. The
custom code in the driver should mimic the code from the core which it is set
to replace/customize.
