I'm not sure the analysis of which function to use when is correct or
what we want here (though it will work ATM), though looking again more
closely at the patch it doesn't look entirely right either. The way
this used to be done, and the way that older code will most likely
assume things work, was that the DAPM functions would first try to match
on the local DAPM context before falling back to doing a global match.
This is what the fallback loop is intended to do, and the dapm functions
are passing the "search other contexts" flag into dapm_find_widget().

I'd not expect the distinction you seem to expect between component and
DAPM and we probably have a bunch of older drivers that aren't working
correctly like the Realtek driver mentioned in the original fix. I
think what needs to happen is that dapm_find_widget() needs to be
checking both the prefixed and non-prefixed names, and that the
component stuff shouldn't need to bother and just be a convenience
wrapper for users that happene to have a component to hand.
Alternatively we need to do an audit of all the non-machine drivers to
switch them to use the component functions exclusively (and possibly
some of the machine drivers as well), most of the CODEC users look to be
a small number of Wolfson/Cirrus ones.
