No, really. Random disconnections in the DAPM graph are just endless
pain from a support and debug point of view. This isn't something that
randomly breaks on specific hardware where we'd expect random errors at
runtime, it's something that will never have worked - it seems clear
nobody tested the mainline submission.

It's very disappointing to see such an error exist, and even more
disappointing that there's no interest in fixing the driver.
