It feels like there's an abstraction problem here with this being hard
coded in a specific CODEC driver.

This shouldn't be in the patch.

This doesn't look good.  There's nothing Dell specific here, and nothing
about this is conditional on any sort of runtime detection of Dell
systems, it's not obvious why this is conditional on DELL_PRIVACY or why
we only report the state if the control is inverted.

I'm also not convinced that it's a good idea to set the mute LED if only
one channel in a stereo microphone is muted, that seems likely to lead
to surprising behaviour for users.

TBH I don't understand why this isn't being done in generic code.

What is this for, it never seems to be read except for in the function
where it's set?
