The patch

   ASoC: dmic: introduce mode switch delay

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: dmic: introduce mode switch delay

On startup, applications such as PulseAudio or CRAS enable playback or
capture on all PCM devices to verify that configurations are correct,
and close them immediately. For DMICs, this can result in the clock
being turned off very quickly, which may not compatible with internal
state machine transition requirements.

This patch add a mode-switch delay which will prevent the clock from
being turned off without complying with manufacturer timing
specifications. While the DMIC clock may be controlled at a lower level,
be it with hardware or firmware, applying the delay during the
STOP_TRIGGER phase ensures that there is no race condition, e.g. with
the hardware/firmware turning off the clock earlier
