Zheng, you said you'd provide a better patch for this but I've heard
nothing since? It's a trivial change you need to make...

That seems like an overreaction, it'll only show up in fairly unrealstic
randconfigs and can be trivially avoided by anyone who actually needs
the driver - core things like all*config won't be affected, and right
now it'll only come up at all if you enable SND_SOC_ALL_CODECS which is
purely about build coverage.

As indicated that's not a good fix since the affected code is all
runtime conditional already. It'd be more likely to impede than help
the sort of build coverage tests where one would encounter it.
