If the lockup can be reproduced easily, could you check whether the
old kernel shows the issue?  I don't remember of any big changes in
ca0132 driver in 4.x kernels.  It'd be helpful even just checking
an openSUSE Leap 42.1 or 42.2 kernel.

This is the code path that runs when the codec chip (CA0132) receives
an unsolicited event with a specific tag (0x16).  It means the DSP
communication going.

Possibly the bug is due to the recursive runtime PM handling.  Could
you check the patch below?
