SubjectApplied "ASoC: rt5514: work around link error" to the asoc tree
The patch

ASoC: rt5514: work around link error

has been applied to the asoc tree at

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] ASoC: rt5514: work around link error

The main rt5514 driver optionally calls into the SPI back-end to load
the firmware. This causes a link error when one driver selects rt5514
as built-in and another driver selects rt5514-spi as a loadable module:

sound/soc/codecs/rt5514.o: In function `rt5514_dsp_voice_wake_up_put':
rt5514.c:(.text+0xac8): undefined reference to `rt5514_spi_burst_write'

As a workaround, this adds another silent symbol, to force rt5514-spi
to be built-in for that configuration. I'm not overly happy with
that solution, but couldn't come up with anything better. Using
'IS_REACHABLE()' would break the case that relies on the loadable
module, and all other ideas would result in more complexity.
