On the way home I realised that the suspend should wait for the card to
be in D0 before it does anything otherwise a resume followed rapidly by
suspend could get confused and try to simulteneously suspend and resume
the ASoC subsystem, which would be messy.

That ought to be straightforward for me to add on if you don't have a
chance to look at this before tomorrow.

That did cross our minds when I talked this over with Liam earlier.  The
registers should be preserved if you only kill the analogue supplies so
yes, the cache writeback should be avoidable.

All it needs is a hook in the codec driver to let the machine driver set
a flag in the codec driver telling it that the chip isn't going to get
powered down.  This could either be a function exported by the WM8753
driver or added to the standard codec ops with a function in the core.
Off the top of my head I'm tending towards a generic hook.
