I'm _strongly_ interested in your two patches, because it has a
potentiality to purge ASoC abuse of TLV feature, which was introduced in
2014 with a bad reviewing process.

Unfortunately, I have a short vacation in this weekend, so my reviewing
is postponed to next week, sorry...

Anyway, in next time, please post them as one patchset so that reviewers
easily pick them up. 'git format-patch' and 'git send-email' will assist
you.
