ASoC: rt5645: Avoid upgrading static warnings to errors
One of the fixes reverted as part of the UMN fallout was actually fine, however rather than undoing the revert the process that handled all this stuff resulted in a patch which attempted to add extra error checks instead. Unfortunately this new change wasn't really based on a good understanding of the subsystem APIs and bypassed the usual patch flow without ensuring it was reviewed by people with subsystem knowledge and was merged as a fix rather than during the merge window. The effect of the new fix is to upgrade what were previously warnings on static data in the code to hard errors on that data. If this actually happens then it would break existing systems, if it doesn't happen then the change has no effect so this was not a safe change to apply as a fix to the release candidates. Since the new code has not been tested and doesn't in practice improve error handling revert it instead, and also drop the original revert since the original fix was fine. This takes the driver back to what it was in -rc1.
