I tend to agree, if we are going to let things not implement this we
need to provide an out of bounds way for them to signal that they don't
support it and make it an error to use the interface at all. Otherwise
the interface complexity increases as you get into special cases and so
on. We only need to fix the drivers that are used with ASoC immediately
and there's not so many of them which is easier than being forced to get
every driver upgraded at once.
