Without this patch, the kernel will load generic codec driver, this will introduce
lots of problems like mute/micmute hotkey can't work.

We have an oem bug #1726245, the audio related hotkey can't work. The root cause
is the codec is not supported by current kernel driver.

[Test Case]
Applying this patch and test the audio related hotkey.

Backport the uptream patch, the patch is written by Realtek engineers.

[Regression Potential]
No, it does not change any existing functions.
