    Looking at the 2 register access routines where
    volatile_register/vol is used, I'd say those
    routines aren't useful at all and the checks
    should be inline instead.

    This sort of wrapper routine doesn't serve
    much of a purpose to me:

    static int wm8904_volatile_register(unsigned int reg)
    - return wm8904_access[reg].vol;
    + return wm8904_access[reg].volatile_register;

    I did a grep for vol in sound, I found the uses
    where it was for volatile and patched them.

    Are there others? Perhaps, but I don't think so.
    Probably not in sound. Was there some other
    subsystem you meant? Maybe you have examples
    I missed?
