This is a fairly standard DSP playback case as far as I can see so it
should work with DAPM without needing this obviously use case specific
stuff peering into the Linux implementation.  Generally this is done by
tagging endpoint widgets and DAIs as ignore_suspend, DAPM will then
figure out the rest of the widgets in the path.
