Audio CODECs for smartphones can easily have well over a thousand
registers (excluding things like DSP memories) connected over
rel;atively slow buses like I2C or SPI with lots of read/modify/write
cycles (so cutting out the physical read is a real win) and we want to
power them off when not in use.
