Subject: [PATCH] ASoC: codecs: Fix WCD_MBHC_HPH_PA_EN usage

'hphpa_on' is known to be false, so the if block at the end of the function
is dead code.

Turn it into a meaningful code by having 'hphpa_on' be static. Use is as a
flip-flop variable.

Fixes: 0e5c9e7ff899 ("ASoC: codecs: wcd: add multi button Headset detection support")
Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
The purpose of this patch is not to be correct (!) but to draw attention
on several points:
   - in 'wcd_mbhc_adc_hs_rem_irq()', the "if (hphpa_on)" path is dead code
     because 'hphpa_on' is known to be false
   - What is this magic number '3'?
     All 'wcd_mbhc_read_field()' look for 0 or non-0
   - a 'mutex_[un]lock()' in an IRQ handler looks spurious to me

Instead of this (likely broken) patch, it is likely that something is
missing elsewhere. Maybe in 'wcd_mbhc_adc_hs_ins_irq()'.
I also guess that 'hphpa_on' should be read for somewhere else.
