First of all, I experienced issues while not having OSC enabled during suspend/resume cycle. Am I right supposing that, if using oscillator to clock the codec, I have to keep it running during a suspend/resume cycle?

Is something like this sounds like an acceptable option or we need something more sophisticated?

        case SND_SOC_BIAS_OFF:

And, yes, there is only 8 bits dedicated to power down control in this register.
