I've a little trouble to understand the prior write over here. Inside my
probe() there's a register_init() call which has a set of regmap_write().
And then the first regmap_write() results the dump. Does that mean this
regmap_write() isn't prior write? If so, how should I do if not setting
default values here -- Some IPs may have default value 0 for registers.
And this would make reg_defaults tedious since there's nothing special
to assign.

And actually I remember I haven't seen any dump when I sent the initial
patch for the whole ASRC driver but it manifested last month. I thought
it might be a partially-merging issue and it would be fixed after merge
window's done.....

Thank you
