Hi Mark,

Thanks for your suggestion.
I agree it's better to allocate the memory at probe time.
I think we can still keep the implementation in the suspend/resume
function as a fallback solution if user doesn't allocate the memory in
probe function.

In the new mediatek SOCs, regcache has been used to handle register
Do I need to add the buffer allocation on probe function to the
platform in which mtk_afe_suspend and mtk_afe_resume are used?
